A low pressure center, which developed off of the central Rockies, is amplifying the wind gusts along with little moisture reaching the ground in the dry regions. Rain has tried to develop but by Monday night and Tuesday, it’ll move away and the warm temperatures along with low humidity dry things out, once again.
Strong wind continues to be a concern for southern New Mexico and West Texas for Monday and Tuesday.
Wind advisories are in place for West Texas and New Mexico with gusts upwards of 50 – 60 mph. Use caution with any outdoor burning as any spark that develops will spread quickly.
Into Tuesday, the strong winds will shift to the east, into Texas, where fire weather outlooks remain elevated and into critical levels for fire concerns.
