A Few T-Storms Developed Across Parts Of West Texas
Last Night, Generally From Just East Of Hobbs, Northeastward

Up .09" For These Storms.

A Strong Late Winter Storm Will Move Eastward Across NM
On Sunday. As This Cold Upper-Level Storm Approaches,
We Can Expect To See A Windy Weekend Across The Area.

Friday Will See SW Winds At Around 20 - 30G40 MPH
With Afternoon Highs In The Upper 70's.

Saturday Will See SW Winds At Around 15 - 25 MPH
With Stronger Gusts In The Afternoon.
Highs Will Be In The Low 80's.

A Potentially Significant High Wind/Blowing Dust
Event Appears Possible On Sunday.
Very Strong Winds Aloft,
(125 - 140 MPH At 18,000' MSL)
(65 - 75 MPH At 10,000' MSL)
Will Combine With A Very Tight Surface Pressure
Gradient, To Produce Very High Winds Over SE NM.

I Think That It Is Possible That We May See SW-W
Winds Gusting Up Into The 65-75 MPH Range
Across The Southeastern Plains On Sunday.

I Also Think That It Is Possible That We Will See
SW-W Winds Gusting In Excess Of 100 MPH
Across The Guadalupe Mountains.

There High Winds Combined With The Very Dry
Conditions Will Also Help To Produce Extremely
Dangerous Fire Weather Conditions Over The Area!

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
