Windy & Dusty Today.

High Wind Warnings are in effect today for Eddy County, the Guadalupe Mountains, southwest Chaves County, Lincoln County, and Culberson County in West Texas. Wind Advisories are in effect today for the rest of the local area including eastern and southern New Mexico.

A strong Pacific cold front will move rapidly across New Mexico today from west to east. This combined with strong winds aloft and a tight surface pressure gradient will make for a windy and locally dusty day in Southeastern New Mexico.

Southwesterly to westerly winds will increase areawide this morning and ramp up by this afternoon. These winds will become sustained at around 25-40 mph with gusts near 50 to 60 mph across the lower elevations. 

Across the Guadalupe Mountains, these winds will become sustained at around 35 to 50 mph with gusts near 70 mph.

Localized areas of blowing dust will develop later this morning and increase in coverage this afternoon as the cold front approaches from the west. A widespread blowing dust event is not anticipated (as of 6:30 AM MDT this morning). But our normally dust-prone areas will experience sudden drops in the visibility at times down to less than one mile with little to no advanced warning. This will be especially true near and over freshly plowed or exposed farmland, open lots and fields, and road/highway construction sites.
