There continues to be variability in the locations in the vicinity
of the Rio Grande Valley that will see the most favorable overlap of
lowered RH and stronger winds. Further, winds will be strongest in
the morning and will steadily decline into the afternoon. Given
these uncertainties, no highlights will be added. However, locally
elevated conditions are still expected.

An upper trough over the Central US is forecast to amplify
significantly as it moves into the northeast Wednesday. Behind the
trough a strong cold front will sweep southeastward ushering in a
much colder air mass over the western and central US. Behind the
front, strong northerly winds are expected over the Plains along
with higher relative humidity, limiting the fire-weather threat. One
exception, may be across parts of south TX and the Rio Grande
Valley. Winds of 20-25 mph may briefly overlap with humidity below
30% over areas of somewhat receptive fuels. However, this is likely
to be brief and widespread fire-weather concerns are not expected.
