This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of south central
New Mexico, southwest New Mexico, and southwest Texas.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Hot temperatures continue with lowland readings around 105 to 110
degrees this afternoon. Thus there will be health concerns due to

Only a slight chance for thunderstorms mainly around mountain areas

A cold front will be moving through the region tonight resulting in
areas of wind gusts around 40 to 50 mph...especially along western
facing slopes.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Moist unstable air will flow into the region Saturday through
Tuesday. As a result thunderstorm activity will become more
widespread across southern New Mexico and west Texas during this

Locally heavy rains expected with a few areas receiving over 2
inches of rainfall. Thus flash flooding may occur especially around
low water crossings, poor drainage areas and along arroyos and
small streams.

gusts to 60 mph.

Thunderstorms will diminish Wednesday and Thursday as drier air
flows back into the region.
