An upper trough and associated surface low are expected to progress
eastward from the lower MS Valley toward the Atlantic coast on
Saturday. A cold front will sweep into the Gulf of Mexico in the
wake of the surface low, with relatively dry and breezy post-frontal
conditions expected across portions of south TX.
...Rio Grande Valley into Deep South TX...
In the wake of the cold front, relatively strong northwest winds
(sustained at 20-25 mph) are expected during the day on Saturday
across portions of the Rio Grande Valley into Deep South TX. As RH
values drop into the 20-30% range, elevated fire-weather conditions
will be possible Saturday afternoon. The greatest threat for locally
critical conditions appears to be across the lower Rio Grande
Valley, where slightly warmer and drier conditions are possible
compared to the rest of the region.
