Timing and Overview:
We continue to track a strong storm system moving into the Central Plains states which will bring a dry-line into South Central Texas today and a cold front through early Saturday morning. Isolated strong to severe storms may form along the dry-line late this afternoon and evening, with a few more strong storms possibly forming along a cold front moving through the area early Saturday. Behind each of these wind shifts today and tomorrow, windy and dry conditions are expected to make for favorable conditions for the spread of fires. Primary threats for severe weather are large hail and to a smaller extent damaging winds.
For critical fire weather conditions: High
For severe weather: Low
