Winds in Odessa

We are planning to leave the Fort Worth area Saturday morning as we head to Mesa, AZ.
We would spend Saturday night near Odessa & resume driving Sunday morning .
The extended forecast is calling for windy conditions on Sunday in the area , so I guess weíll hang out there for a day .

Sounds like a plan. Those winds can make for a hard drive.

Free camping at the city park in Lamesa.

Or, having only driven by, stopping short of Midland/Odessa in Coahoma would be preferable.

Ha! You went all in. That's where the sand comes from that blows around in Odessa. I spent the fist 19 years of my life there thinking the wind must blow everywhere, especially in the Spring.

Just came through on I-20 the other day.

Check for availability for overnight stay as most RV parks are full due to the oil field workers. We ended up staying at a roadside rest stop along with lots of trucks.

Worked out fine and saved some bucks too.

I wouldn’t want to be there if the wind is blowing but that could be said for a lot of places.

Lived in El Paso for 22 years. There is hardly a place to duck out of the wind, heat or cold west of Abiliene.
Winds under 20 mpg aren't bad but over 30 the dust starts blowing. Make sure your in a safe location by early afternoon. We wait out storms or leave 2 days early to avoid bad weather.
Monahans sand would not be a good place in high winds.
East side of El Paso is Mission rv park out of winds.
NM parks are all prone to winds.
