Fire Weather Planning Forecast For Southeast Texas
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX
306 PM CDT Mon Oct 15 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Unsettled weather can be expected for the next several days.
Though drier air will push into the area, the post-frontal air mass
is also much cooler, so relative humidity will stay high. The layer
of air near the surface will also be quite stable, keeping mixing
heights very low.
