Now, here’s your TTR Weekend Weather from the National Weather Service in Austin – San Antonio:
The state has not seen much rain over the past two weeks and there have been periods of accelerated drying followed by short periods of higher dewpoints and higher Relative Humidity. Most of the fire activity on the 7 day map occurred early last week during a period of accelerated drying. We have seen a pause in fire occurrence since Thursday when cooler air and increased surface moisture moved into the state. The next 7 days will see dry air expanding across the state from west to east starting Monday. Surface fuels will quickly dry with the warm dry air.
In Texas, local governments are empowered to take action on the behalf of those they serve. When drought conditions exist, a burn ban can be put in place by a county judge or county commissioners court prohibiting or restricting outdoor burning for public safety. Locally, a Burn Ban is in effect for all of De Witt County, Texas.
Have a great weekend,
