Stormy Veterans Day possible, colder next week

GREENVILLE — A stormy day is possible for Veterans Day Sunday, to be followed by a steep drop in temperatures for Monday’s observance of the holiday.

Any rain which does fall would be welcome, as the area has again entered moderate drought conditions. But the gusty winds expected with the passage of a powerful cold front could also increase the danger of grass fires.       

As of Thursday evening, the National Weather Service forecast was calling for a 70 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms Sunday afternoon, under cloudy skies with a high of around 75 degrees. Winds are expected to be gusting out of the south at up to 25 miles per hour.

More storms are predicted for Sunday night, with a low around 43 degrees, with the winds shifting out of the north at up to 25 miles per hour early Monday morning.

Monday afternoon’s high is forecast to reach 57 degrees, with continued gusty winds out of the north, with a low in the mid 30s Monday night.

Hunt County was placed under high fire danger conditions Thursday by the Texas Forest Service due to the dry conditions and gusting winds.

Hunt County is not currently under a burn ban, although there are still certain restrictions to outdoor burning. The burning of household trash is only permissible during daylight hours and the wind speed cannot be greater then 23 mph. Natural materials, such as brush and limbs can be burned, but not treated or painted lumber. No prohibited material — including but not limited to: rubber, plastics, wire, insulation and furniture — can be burned, and a responsible person must be present during active burning.
