Much of North Texas is under a warning for dangerous wildfire conditions on Thursday.

Warm temperatures and gusting winds could make for a busy day for firefighters.

Though a front rolls through the region on Thursday morning, its origin is from the Pacific, so it won't be dropping temperatures drastically; we'll still have a day in the upper 60s to low 70s.

However, that same front will usher in very dry and very windy conditions. Gusts up to 35 mph are expected and coupled with humidity levels of 15 to 30 percent, the National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning in effect from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday which includes Dallas, Tarrant, Denton and Collin counties.

Isolated showers and thunderstorms will be confined to far East Texas.
