It's been another pretty good day across the region, although we have seen more cloud-cover today than we saw yesterday, which is holding down those temperatures a bit. Tonight, we'll stay pretty mild thanks to a southerly wind at around 15 mph. Overnight lows will only dip into the upper 50s and low 60s.
We'll start to see those winds pick up into Wednesday as a low pressure system sweeps through the Texas Panhandle. Wind speeds in the Permian Basin will likely be 20-30 mph with gusts up to 45 mph. Even stronger winds are expected in the Guadalupe Mountains, where a High Wind Watch is in place. There will be a slight rain chance of rain in the northern Permian Basin and SE New Mexico, but much of the area will stay dry.
A northerly wind will bring in slightly cooler weather for Thursday. High temps will top out in the mid 70s under sunny skies. A warming trend is expected as we head into the weekend as a high pressure ridge develops. Highs in Friday will be near 80, while temperatures for Saturday and Easter Sunday reach near 90 degrees.
