Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Fire Weather Watch means that critical fire weather conditions

sustained 20 foot winds of 25 mph or greater... humidity ranging
from below 25 percent in Zapata County to below 45 percent along
the coast... each lasting for 2 hours or more... and cured fuels.
Humidity below 25 percent in most areas will trigger fire danger
