Be Happy

The National Weather Service in San Angelo, Texas has issued a hazardous weather outlook for portions of west central Texas. This outlook includes the following counties: Fisher, Nolan, Sterling, Coke, Runnels, Irion, Tom Green, Concho, Crockett, Schleicher, Sutton, Haskell, Throckmorton, Jones, Shackelford, Taylor, Callahan, Coleman, Brown, McCulloch, San Saba, Menard, Kimble, and Mason.

For tonight, elevated fire danger conditions are expected to prevail as a dry air mass combines with west winds gusting over 20 mph at times.

Looking ahead to the upcoming week, the elevated fire danger is expected to continue into Sunday afternoon due to the very dry air mass in place. Additionally, severe storms will be possible late in the week as another cold front moves into the area.

Residents in the affected counties are advised to stay aware of changing weather conditions and to take necessary precautions to protect themselves and their property from potential hazards. This may include avoiding outdoor burning, securing loose items that could become airborne in strong winds, and staying up to date on local weather alerts and warnings.

Motorists should also exercise caution while driving in the affected areas, particularly during times of high wind gusts, which can make it difficult to control vehicles. The National Weather Service recommends staying tuned to local news and weather outlets for the latest information and updates on weather conditions in the area.

This hazardous weather outlook serves as a reminder that even in relatively mild weather conditions, it is important to stay aware of potential hazards and to take appropriate steps to protect oneself and one's property. By staying informed and prepared, residents can help ensure their safety and the safety of those around them during periods of hazardous weather.
