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.
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.

Will there be strong storms with the front?
Most of the storms that form will mainly produce brief, heavy rain and lightning. Gusty winds may occur with a few storms. Because the storms will be scattered, many areas won't see a drop of rain, especially northwest of Houston.
How cool are we talking?
Low temperatures Thursday are expected to be in the upper 50s with afternoon high temperatures in the low 80s.
Is there anything of concern in the tropics?
At this time, no. Tropical Storms Peter and Rose are expected to stay out in the Atlantic far away from the Gulf. You can get a full overview of the tropics on our tropical update page.
