The National Weather Service issued a Red Flag Warning for the Texas Hill Country and Southern Edwards Plateau beginning at 3:20 p.m. The warning is set to expire at 3 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 20.

A strong cold front will move through the Southern Edwards Plateau early this evening and across the remainder of the area overnight. Windy and very dry conditions will surge across South Central Texas in the wake of the front and temperatures are expected to fall on pace with relative humdities. Critical fire conditions will persist for the overnight into much of Thursday, with breezy and dry weather.

The warning is issued for the following counties: Atascosa; Bastrop; Bexar; Caldwell; Comal; De Witt; Dimmit; Fayette; Frio; Gonzales; Guadalupe; Hays; Karnes; Lavaca; Lee; Maverick; Medina; Travis; Uvalde; Williamson; Wilson; Zavala.

A Red Flag Warning means that critical fire weather conditions are either occurring now or will shortly. Avoid the use of open flames or any activities that may generate sparks. Accidental ignitions will have the potential to grow quickly into dangerous, wind-driven wildfires.

The red flag warning has been extended until 6 p.m. this evening, Dec. 20, due to continued strong winds and low relative humidities. Please note that a burn ban for the day remains in effect while the red flag warning continues.
