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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight
Moisture will continue to work its way into the region today. As
a result isolated to scattered thunderstorms will start
developing in the higher terrain of Grant and Otero counties and
move into the lowlands by late this afternoon/evening. The main
threat with these storms will be strong wind gusts up to 55 MPH
and lightning strikes. Dry lighting will be an issue in the the
Gila Region where the air will be drier. A few storms could be
strong, especially in the higher terrain, and these storms could
produce small hail and localized heavy rainfall.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

The weather pattern mentioned above will repeat itself Tuesday
and Wednesday. Late Wednesday into Thursday drier air will start
to move into SW NM resulting in spottier storm coverage in the
Bootheel region. Afternoon storms will continue elsewhere with
the main threats being strong wind gusts, lightning and localized
heavy rainfall in the desert arroyos of Hudspeth and Otero
counties. Friday drier air will erode the moisture in all areas
expect Otero and Hudspeth counties where the threat for isolated
storms will continue.

Spotters should call in if they witness any localized heavy
rainfall that causes minor flooding over roadways or low water
crossings or if they experience any hail.
