Be careful, if you have to handle an open flame as the vegetation that has grown in since our last heavy rainfall is now certainly dried out.
Fires that start, could spread quickly.
Other than that, we will see breezy conditions throughout the Permian Basin with south winds sustained at 10-20 mph.
These south winds and clear skies will help us climb into the low 60's across the area today.
Tomorrow, breezy condtions continue with highs in the mid-60's.
Friday, we are looking at a wind storm moving into the mountainous regions of the area.
The Davis and Apache Mountains (including Fort Davis, Alpine and Marfa) could see sustained winds of 35-50 with gusts as high as 65.
The Guadalupe Pass could see the same 35-50 sustained, with gusts as high as 80!
These winds can be very damaging, so avoid travel if you can.
If you must travel, check to see if you need to take any detours or avoid certain areas, as it will be difficult to maintain a vehicle in these gusts.
These winds could also bring in dust, impeding visibility.
Temperatures that day should be in the 70's across the area, as we will all see south winds 20-30 mph.
These winds are ahead of a system that will move through and drop us into the mid 60's for the weekend, and back into the 50's by Tuesday.
