Central Texas is under a red flag warning for wildfires.

This means the humidity is low but the winds are high, which are perfect conditions for wildfires to start and spread even as our temperatures start to drop.

"Don't be complacent just because it gets a little cooler. You're still on the burn bans and the county burn bans are still in effect for a reason. And that's all because you haven't gotten enough rain yet,"  Texas Forest Services Information Officer John Nichols said.

Texas Forest Services say before you light a grill or fire, call your local fire station and check first.

But as the Forest Service officials say, what we need is rain with a name i.e. ----- a hurricane.
