High Winds Expected Friday Afternoon for South Plains and Panhandle
A high wind event is expected for the South Plains and Panhandle region for Friday.
A fast moving storm will move eastward across the southern Rockies Friday afternoon, and then move northeast across the Oklahoma Panhandle Friday evening.
Late tonight and Friday morning, low level moisture levels will increase with the possibility of low clouds and fog developing across the region. As energy from the system draws closer, scattered light showers may develop Friday morning.
Toward noon, a band of showers and isolated thunderstorms may develop along the fast moving Pacific front. As the front moves east, it will take most of the precipitation with it.
Rain amounts are expected to be light, generally less than 1/10 inch, but the high based showers may result in locally strong wind gusts as they move to the northeast at 50-60 mph.
