THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTH CENTRAL
NEW MEXICO...SOUTHWEST NEW MEXICO AND SOUTHWEST TEXAS.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT
THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE MOSTLY LIMITED TO THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF
SOUTHWEST NEW MEXICO THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING, WITH A FEW
ISOLATED STORMS ALSO POSSIBLE IN THE SACRAMENTO MOUNTAINS. LOWLAND
THUNDERSTORMS WILL PRIMARILY BE IN SOUTHWEST NEW MEXICO THIS
EVENING. FOR THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS, THE MAIN THREATS WILL BE
LOCALIZED DOWNPOURS AND CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING. ANY FLOODING
WILL BE EXTREMELY LOCALIZED. FOR THE LOWLANDS, THE MAIN THREATS
WILL BE ISOLATED WIND GUSTS TO 50 MPH AND CLOUD TO GROUND
LIGHTNING.

FOR SOUTH-CENTRAL NEW MEXICO AND FAR WEST TEXAS, THE MAIN WEATHER
HAZARD WILL BE THE HEAT. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL REACH FOR 105
DEGREES IN EL PASO AND THE LOWER RIO GRANDE VALLEY THIS AFTERNOON,
AND OVERNIGHT LOWS WILL STRUGGLE TO DROP MUCH LOWER THAN 75
DEGREES. A HEAT ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR THE EL PASO METRO

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY
WARM TO HOT TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE FOR THE LOWLANDS, BUT
AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY WILL SLOWLY INCREASE THROUGH THE
WEEK, TAKING THE EDGE OFF THE HEAT. INCREASING THUNDERSTORMS WILL
LEAD TO BETTER CHANCES FOR LOCALIZED FLOODING IN THE HIGHER
TERRAIN, WITH STRONG OUTFLOW WINDS AND DUST IN THE LOWLANDS.
LOCALIZED FLOODING WILL BECOME MORE OF A RISK IN THE LOWLANDS
LATER IN THE WEEK AS WE MOISTEN UP.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED...BUT REAL-TIME CALLS OF
STRONG WIND GUSTS AND DUST FROM ANY THUNDERSTORM OUTFLOW...AS
WELL AS HEAVY RAIN AND FLASH FLOODING ARE ENCOURAGED.
