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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

No hazardous weather is expected at this time. Stronger southwest
winds will occur this afternoon for portions of Hidalgo, Luna, and
Grant counties which may lead to an elevated fire danger. Patchy
blowing dust may affect the I-10 corridor near Lordsburg.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

A pacific storm system will transport moisture into the desert
southwest on Wednesday with rain showers beginning by Wednesday
afternoon and continuing through Thursday. Rain amounts up to a
half an inch are possible. Snow chances for elevations above 7500
feet remain slight due to the warm moist air mass in place. Rain
chances for Friday and Saturday will be greatly diminished as the
deeper moisture shifts away from the area. Sunday will be cool and
dry with breezy to windy conditions.


Spotter activation will not be needed.
