Harris says, "It's bringing in some northeast winds, probably about 10 to 15 miles an hour."
With the temperatures being so hot, you may not think cool air is such a bad idea, but it can turn into one.
"The problem with the cold front and wild fires is the wind shift," says Harris.
Wind shifts that occur have the power to change the direction that the fire burns, which can be a danger to both the public and firefighters.
Harris says, "The increase in winds and dry humidity, that's what is a danger for creating the wildfires."
The fact that the Big Country has not seen a substantial amount of rain in a while does not help.
Harris explains, "It's a very dangerous situation with this exceptional drought. We don't foresee any rainfall, significant rainfall for another month."
The fire season started in November of 2010 and as we approach the eleventh month, we cannot help but wonder if this will ever end.
Corky Conover says, "It's going to last pretty much until the whole state of Texas gets significant rainfall spread over several days."
Until we get that relief, residents are encouraged to make their homes more defensible for firefighters to fight in the event of a fire.
The Texas Forest Service urges people to be extra cautious as we enter this fall season.
"It's really explosive fuel conditions out there we can't do much about lightening, but the human cause fires, we can have an impact on," says Conover.
