And The Wind & Dust Are Back - Especially On Friday.


Strong Storm To Our West.


High Fire Danger & Windy Today Into Friday.




In true New Mexico tradition our spring is turning out to be a windy and dusty one across much of the state. Today will be breezy with southwesterly winds gusting up to around 30 mph this afternoon and continuing overnight. High temperatures across southeastern New Mexico and parts of West texas will be in the mid-upper 80's today. A Wind Advisory has been issued for southern New Mexico for today for southwesterly winds sustained at 30 mph with gusts near 50 mph. A Blowing Dust Advisory is also in effect for areas of blowing dust reducing the visibility down to less than one mile at times mainly in the El Paso and Lordsburg areas today.

As a strong mid-upper level storm to our west approaches from the west on Friday southwesterly winds will crank up even higher locally. A High Wind Watch is in effect for the Guadalupe Mtn's for southwesterly winds gusting up to around 60 mph on Friday. Highs on Friday will be in the mid 70's to near 80. 



Scattered thunderstorms are still forecast to fire up along and east of the dryline tonight east of the Pecos River. Some of these could become severe especially across West Texas. Another round of thunderstorms still looks possible Sunday night and into the first of next week. Some of these storms may also become severe.
