Burn bans in effect:

Fort Bend County is the latest area to issue an outdoor burn ban. These are issued based on the daily water balance of soil moisture. The scale goes from 0 to 800. Zero represents no moisture depletion, and an index of 800 represents absolutely dry conditions. The Fort Bend County index is 665 and is expected to climb above 700 this weekend.
