I’m literally wearing my mask today at work just so I don’t breathe in all the dust that’s flying around everywhere. It’s like a dust storm out at my job..terrible. My eyes are thanking me as well.

.AVIATION [18Z TAF Issuance]...

VFR conditions will prevail through the duration of the TAF period
with clear skies expected. However, strong northwest winds
continue across the area through the remainder of the afternoon
with gusts between 30 and 40 knots anticipated through 00Z. Winds
relax slightly at the surface overnight, but remain at around 40
to 50 knots at 2000ft. As a result, have included wind shear
groups after 00Z at most terminals. Tomorrow, wind gusts taper off
slightly but remain elevated, reaching around 25 knots during the
afternoon at most locations.

Right. They'd call it "Thursday." :lol:

30G 40 NW advection in CLL. It was inside in CLL. Even more dramatic here. We have a NW facing street that comes to a T on the other side of our street and between us and the neighbor. Wind Tunnel Action.

We have power up here in The Woodlands but it has been flickering all afternoon long. [I feel very fortunate!]
