Rusty Garrett here with the weekend outlook: Saturday will be the milder of the two days. Sun and clouds will be the rule with early weekend highs in the mid 80s. Back to the low to mid 90s on Sunday!
(December 18, 2012)—Dry conditions, warmer-than-usual temperatures and gusty southwest winds increased the wildfire threat in parts of Texas Tuesday and the threat will grow over the next several days, forecasters say.
A critical fire threat is expected Wednesday west of a line from Jacksboro to Mineral Wells to Eastland as strong northwest winds build over much of North Texas behind a cold front.
Fire conditions are expected to remain elevated for much of North Texas Thursday and Friday, as well.
The fire danger is also high in West Texas and in the extreme southeastern Texas Panhandle.
