Fire Weather Planning Forecast For Southeast Texas
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX
350 PM CST Sun Feb 25 2018

.DISCUSSION... 
Unsettled weather will continue this evening as a nearly 
stationary cold front over the region interacts with disturbances 
moving in from the west. Winds will initially range from the 
northeast behind and along the front to south and southeast ahead
of it. The front is expected to briefly move off the coast late 
tonight or early Monday morning and result in winds becoming 
northeasterly... then returning north as a warm front on Tuesday 
with southerly winds resuming as the warm front lifts north.
