GRASS FIRE DANGER STATEMENT  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORT WORTH TX  
505 AM CDT SUN MAR 26 2017  
 
...ELEVATED FIRE THREAT WEST OF A JACKSBORO TO COMANCHE LINE LATE  
THIS AFTERNOON...  
 
FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS ARE DEPENDENT ON THE LOCATION OF THE DRYLINE  
THIS AFTERNOON. MOST GUIDANCE BRINGS THE DRYLINE INTO OUR WESTERN  
COUNTIES IN THE LATE AFTERNOON HOURS. HOWEVER, IF THE DRYLINE IS  
SLOWER TO ARRIVE, WIND SPEEDS BEHIND THE DRYLINE MAY BE  
DECREASING, WHICH WOULD LOWER THE OVERALL FIRE WEATHER THREAT.  
BASED ON THE CURRENT FORECAST THAT THE DRYLINE ARRIVES LATE THIS  
AFTERNOON, WIND SPEEDS BEHIND THE BOUNDARY WILL BE 15-20 MPH. WITH  
HUMIDITY VALUES IN THE 20S BEHIND THE DRYLINE, THIS WOULD YIELD A  
FEW HOURS OF AN ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER THREAT WEST OF A JACKSBORO  
TO COMANCHE LINE. THE MOST LIKELY TIME FRAME FOR AN ELEVATED  
THREAT WILL BE BETWEEN 3-7 PM. IF WIND SPEEDS ARE A LITTLE  
STRONGER BEHIND THE DRYLINE, A SHORT WINDOW OF CRITICAL FIRE  
WEATHER CONDITIONS MAY EXIST BETWEEN 3-6 PM.  
 
EXTREME CARE IS URGED DURING ALL OUTSIDE ACTIVITIES WHERE THERE  
IS A POTENTIAL FOR GRASS FIRES TO GET STARTED. AVOID OUTSIDE  
BURNING AND WELDING. DO NOT TOSS LIT CIGARETTE BUTTS OUTSIDE.  
REPORT WILD FIRES TO THE NEAREST FIRE DEPARTMENT OR LAW  
ENFORCEMENT OFFICE QUICKLY.
