Increased fire danger for Sunday

(KLTV) - After a very pleasant start to fall 2011, temperatures will be on the increase and the fire danger returns for Sunday.

A weak cold front is going to be approaching the area during the day on Sunday, and because of this the pressure gradient with tighten, which will increase the winds.  Sustained winds are forecast to be between 10 and 20 mph, while gusts can exceed 25mph.

Daytime highs are going to be on the increase, as a lot of us are expected to top out in the lower to middle 90s on Sunday. With dry air still in place this increases the fire danger for Sunday.

We continue to remind everyone, that all of East Texas is still under a burn ban.
