As drier air from the northwest starts to spread southeastward
over the Borderland, the final waves of instability showers are
now mainly concentrated in southern Otero, El Paso and Hudspeth
counties at this time. This activity is on the decline and
continues to move southeastward at around 20 mph. Rainfall amounts
are mostly light less than .1 inches. Isolated thunderstorms may
still occur with brief heavier rain (.1 to .3 inches), small hail,
isolated lightning and gusty outflow winds. Any rainfall will
likely cause slick roads and caution is advised.
