NWS: Critical Wildfire Conditions Continue Sunday with Thunderstorms by Tuesday


 SAN ANGELO – The threat of dangerous out of control wildfires continues across all of West Texas including the City of San Angelo and the Concho Valley through sunset Sunday. 

According to meteorologists with the National Weather Service Office in San Angelo, southwest winds of 15 to 20 mph will gust to 30 mph at times combining with relative humidity levels at 7 percent and extremely dry fuels to create critical wildfire conditions.  

The NWS has issued another Red Flag Warning for West Texas from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday due to critical wildfire conditions. 

Look for high temperatures Sunday and Monday to reach the lower 90s region wide. Monday will be another day with critical wildfire conditions.  

A strong cold front is expected to blow through the Concho Valley Tuesday bringing the first significant chance to the area in weeks.  The strong upper level storm system will develop strong to severe thunderstorms Tuesday night.  The area most likely to see storms with large hail and damaging winds will be east of a Junction to Sterling City to Sweetwater line. 

Temperatures will remain cooler for the rest of the week with highs in the 80s following the passage of that storm system Tuesday night.
