A strong center of high pressure is building in behind our recent cold front and it's pumping some cold and dry air into the state...and fast! Northerly winds at 15-25 mph has produced dewpoints in the teens across a good portion of Texas, with some single-digit dewpoints reported as well.
The lack of moisture is combining with our gusty winds to increase the risk of fire weather. As a result, a Red Flag Warning is in effect from Bryan/College Station southward through 6:00 p.m., Monday evening. This basically means that it won't take much to start fires, so be sure to use caution outdoors.
Our winds will relax tonight and produce another weather hazard Tuesday morning -- freezes! Most of north and central Texas will drop to (or below) 32 degrees during the overnight hours. There's a slight chance that some smaller communities (out in the country) in the Brazos Valley could drop into the lower 30s as well, but the official forecast for Bryan/College Station will call for a 39 degree low...which is still pretty cold!
