This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for the South Plains, Rolling

A Wind Advisory is in effect from 2 PM until 8 PM CDT for the far
southwestern Texas Panhandle and northwestern South Plains.
Sustained southwesterly winds of 30-35 mph and gusts to 50 mph are

There is a slight chance of strong to marginally severe thunderstorms
over the eastern Rolling Plains this afternoon. Primary concern will
be hail up to one inch and wind gusts up to 60 MPH.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.

and the northern South Plains and northern Rolling Plains on Friday
from 10 AM to 6 PM for sustained winds of 30-40 mph and gusts up to

through Tuesday as conditions will remain extremely dry, winds
breezy, and as fuels continue to dry with low chances of
precipitation.
