Today will bring another round of wind as the next storm system quickly approaches through the Desert Southwest. Westerly winds of 25 to 35 mph, with gusts to 50 mph, will be common across much of the South Plains region this afternoon. The strong winds will persist through much of tonight as they swing around to the northwest. Additionally, spotty light showers, perhaps even a rumble of thunder, will be possible. Highs will range from the middle 50s to middle 60s.
