...Synopsis...
Confidence continues to increase with regards to sustained wind
speeds reaching and exceeding 20 mph across several areas this
afternoon. The Critical area has been expanded eastward slightly
across more of the western TX Panhandle, where higher wind speeds
appear likely. This increased southwest surface flow is anticipated
as a lee surface trough deepens this afternoon, and momentum
transfer from aloft occurs in a deeply mixed air mass. The Critical
area was also expanded northwestward near the Zuni Mountains.
Widespread single-digit RH will also accompany the breezy
conditions. Fuels across the region are likely becoming more
receptive given a lack of appreciable rainfall and persistent warm,
dry conditions.
