Amarillo, Texas - That cold front sweeping in our area will create more dangerous wildfire conditions across Texas. 

The Texas Forest Service is warning everyone to be on high alert. The warm temperatures, dry air and gusty winds will push through ahead of the front, resulting in extremely critical conditions.

The situation will be made even worse by the drought, which has left an overload of dried and dead plants.

Since wildfire season started in November of last year, 23,000 fires have burned 3.8 million acres and destroyed 2,700 homes.
