Record high temperatures will continue across West Texas and southeast New Mexico this afternoon and Thursday. Windy conditions will continue across the Guadalupe mountains, Van Horn Region and the Davis mountains through this evening. The windy conditions combined with very low relative humidity values will lead to extremely high fire danger across this area through this evening. The Red Flag warning will continue through 6 PM CST today.
Very warm, windy and dry conditions are expected across southeast New Mexico and West Texas on Thursday. A Red Flag warning is in effect from noon CST until 9:00 PM CST on Thursday for the Permian Basin, southeast New Mexico, Trans Pecos, Marfa Plateau and the Davis Mountains.
