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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

A large upper trough will continue to bring small disturbances
over the local area that will initiate isolated to scattered
thunderstorm development over the mountains and lowland areas
generally east of El Paso for this afternoon and evening. Some of
the storms may produce periods of moderate rainfall and outflow
wind gusts up to 45 mph with possible blowing dust.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible
again on Sunday afternoon and evening mainly for the mountains and
areas east of El Paso. A drier westerly flow will occur Monday
through Wednesday that will limit thunderstorm chances to a few
areas along the international border with drier conditions
expected further north. The flow pattern will become more
southwesterly later in the week and allow moisture and weak
disturbances to generate isolated to scattered thunderstorms for
Thursday and Friday afternoon and evening. Strong wind gusts with
possible blowing dust and brief periods of moderate to heavy
rainfall will be possible from some of the storms.


Spotter activation is not needed but reports of any observed
significant wind, dust or rain should be forwarded to local
officials and the National Weather Service.
