Strong winds will increase fire threat Monday

We’re tracking a strong cold front set to push through central Texas during the dawn hours on Monday morning.

With the front’s passage, we will see a 50% chance of scattered showers – with an isolated stronger thunderstorm possible. For those of us who do get a shower, rainfall amounts will unfortunately remain light.

Behind the front is when another threat comes into play.

The National Weather Service has issued both a Wind Advisory and a Red Flag Warning for central Texas from 10 AM – 7 PM Monday.

Gusty NW winds ushering in colder, dry air could reach speeds of 40 MPH Monday afternoon! Be sure to use extra caution, as the risk of wind-driven wildfires will be very high.
