The gusty winds along with the dry air and ground northwest of Houston will create ideal grass fire spreading weather so a Fire Weather Watch has been issued.
Cooler temps in the upper 50s are expected for Thursday morning.
The lack of rain northwest of Houston means the ground is dry. That along with the gusty winds and dry air expected on Tuesday means grass fires could spread quickly.
