Isolated thunderstorms will be possible across the northeastern Rolling Plains this afternoon and evening. A strong wind gust up to 50 mph will be possible. The threat for strong to possibly low-end severe thunderstorms will be limited in both space and time as storms form and quickly move eastward.
Clouds will quickly decrease from west-to-east late this morning and into the early afternoon hours. Winds will gradually shift to the west and increase to around 20-25 mph with localized gusts to 30 mph. Elevated to near-critical fire weather conditions will be possible as breezy west winds combine with low relative humidity. Isolated thunderstorms will be possible across the northeastern Rolling Plains this afternoon and evening, with a low chance for an isolated strong wind gust up to 50 mph.
A weak cold front will move southward across the region tonight with winds shifting to the north in its wake at around 10-20 mph beneath a clear sky.

Local Weather History For April 23rd...
1980: An intense upper air cyclone drew closer to West Texas this afternoon resulting in several strong storms from the
northern TX Panhandle south to the Permian Basin. In the South Plains, nearly four inches of rain fell in less than one
hour in Tahoka causing flash flooding. Some cars were stranded under some of the HWY 87 overpasses requiring high-water
rescues. Water was reported in one home and some residences.
