The warning is in effect from noon to 7 p.m. due to a dry cold front that will drop temperatures across the state.</p><p>Winds of 15 to 20 mph are expected and may reach up to 30 mph in some places. These gusty winds make the danger of wildfires especially high when paired with low humidity and very dry air. Outdoor burning is not recommended, and any fires that do start will likely spread rapidly.</p> Fri, 28 Dec 2012 20:27:47 +0000 Chris Eudaily 3964 at http://tpr.org Red Flag Warning Issued For Areas Of South Texas - Fire Danger High
