COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- A cold front is expected to move into Texas on Sunday afternoon, creating dangerous wildfire conditions for much of the state.

Warm temperatures, dry air and gusty winds are expected to push through just ahead of the cold front, creating extremely critical conditions. Those dangerous conditions will be made worse by the unrelenting drought that has left an overabundance of dried and dead vegetation in its wake.

Areas at risk include parts of the Hill Country, Central Texas, upper South Texas, lower North Texas, the Rolling Plains and central East Texas.

People need to be aware of how critical a situation this is, particularly with vegetation that’s so dry. It’s very easy for a fire to start, spread and get out of hand,” said Tom Spencer, Texas Forest Service Predictive Services department head.

If a fire starts accidentally in your neighborhood, be on the alert. If they ask you to evacuate, by all means, do it.”

Since wildfire season started on Nov. 15, 2010, firefighters have responded to 23,519 fires that have burned almost 3.8 million acres and destroyed 2,742 homes. Another 34,756 homes have been saved by firefighting efforts.
