Episode Narrative A storm system impacted the Southern Plains on the 9th and produced widespread strong westerly winds and blowing dust over west Texas. Sustained winds up to 44 mph and gusts as high as 62 mph were recorded at a number of Texas Tech University West Texas Mesonet and Automated Surface Observing System sites across the South Plains region.
The winds severely damaged a Texas Forest Service greenhouse near Idalou (Lubbock County) and destroyed a bank awning in Wolfforth (Lubbock County). A number of homes reportly sustained minor roof damage in the Lubbock vicinity. Property damages were estimated near $250,000.
The winds additionally combined with the ongoing drought to result in several fire starts across the South Plains, but none of the fire starts evolved into significant wildfires. A devastating wildfire outbreak, however, impacted areas east of the South Plains region.
A list of severe wind gusts measured by area surface observing sites follows: 62 mph at Childress (Childress County), 62 mph at Lubbock (Lubbock County), 61 mph at Turkey (Hall County), 60 mph at Anton (Hockley County), 60 mph at Aspermont (Stonewall County), 59 mph at Amherst (Lamb County), 59 mph at Floydada (Floyd County), 59 mph at O'Donnell (Lynn County), 59 mph at Paducah (Cottle County), 59 mph at Plainview (Hale County), 59 mph at Roaring Springs (Motley County), 58 mph at Hart (Lamb County), and 58 mph at Plains (Yoakum County).
