Fire Weather Watch Issued For South Plains Tuesday Afternoon & Evening
A fire weather watch has been issued for the majority of the South Plains for tomorrow.
The fire weather watch will be in effect from Tuesday afternoon through Tuesday evening.
Low humidity, combined with high winds and dry conditions results in high fire danger in the area, and under these conditions, fires can spread rapidly.
The National Weather Service says that a front will move across the area after 6 p.m, and the front will bring an abrupt shift in wind direction to the north, as well as an increase in wind speeds and blowing dust.
Outdoor burning and any activities that might spark fires are not recommended.
As always, as the weather changes, we’ll keep you updated.
