HOUSTON -– A Red Flag Warning is in effect for much of southeast Texas due to dry, gusty winds, according to KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Brooks Garner.
The warning was set to expire at 3 p.m. Tuesday for Madison, Walker, Burleson, Brazos. Washington, Grimes, Montgomery, Colorado, Austin, Waller, Harris, Chambers, Wharton, Fort Bend, Jackson. Matagorda, Brazoria, and Galveston Counties.
This afternoon we’ll top out in the low-60s under sunny skies. Wednesday will also be sunny, but the winds will die down and the daytime temperatures will increase a few degrees.
Thursday a chance for rain moves in, and the daytime temperatures drop into the 50s.
Early Friday morning the rain continues as the temperatures drop into the low-30s, creating the possibility for wintry conditions on the roads -- especially on bridges and overpasses. Once the sun comes up the roads should not be an issue, but the rain chance continues until Saturday.
By Sunday the sun returns as daytime temperatures increase back into the 60s.
