Unexpected high level clouds are helping to keep winds lower than forecast across the southern Panhandle and South Plains. Where the sun is shining across the Permian Basin and Far West Texas winds are gusting up to 55 MPH. Blowing dust is also possible. Fire danger remains very high across Northwest Texas, the Big Country, the Concho Valley, the Hill Country, and into the Permian Basin. We’ll continue to see gusty winds this afternoon before winds start to diminish after sunset.
