Wildfire activity is expected to gradually increase throughout the week, as fire weather occurs where dry vegetation is present across West and South Texas.

Todays’s critical fire weather coupled with above normal temperatures and extremely dry grasses near Amarillo, Lubbock, Childress, Sweetwater, San Angelo and Ozona, will make suppression efforts difficult.

Large wildfires are likely on Wednesday in South Texas where critically dry to extremely dry fuel will be exposed to above normal temperatures and critical fire weather. Dry vegetation in the Eastern and Western Hill Country may also support wildfire ignitions on Wednesday.
