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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Isolated thunderstorms will occur this afternoon and evening for
areas mainly along the international border and also for areas
from El Paso eastward. The Gila region will also have some brief
thunderstorm activity this afternoon and early evening. Stronger
thunderstorms may produce brief periods of heavy rainfall and
small hail. Wind gusts from these storms will reach 45 mph with
possible blowing dust.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

The weather pattern will trend drier and less active for Monday
through Wednesday as the upper flow pattern becomes more westerly
and brings in a drier air mass. Isolated storms may still be
possible along the border region that is closer to deeper
moisture. Chances for rain and thunderstorms will increase
Thursday into next weekend as the flow pattern becomes more
southwesterly and allows moisture south of the border to move into
the area.


Spotter activation will not be needed. Spotters should report any
observed significant weather or flooding to local authorities and
the National Weather Service.
