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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Hot temperatures continue with lowland readings in the upper 90s
to around 100 to 103 degrees this afternoon. Thus there will be
health concerns due to heat.

Patchy areas of smoke from regional wildfires will be noted in
portions of Grant and western Sierra County. The smoke may also
cause respiratory problems over a few locations.

Isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible over most of the
Borderland this afternoon and tonight; but favoring the area
mountains and lowlands west of the Rio Grande. Isolated severe
thunderstorms are also expected with moderate-sized hail, and
strong gusty outflow winds. Hail and wind could do minor damage
over isolated locations. In addition, blowing dust could pose a
serious travel threat.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

More isolated storms possible Wednesday and Thursday, a few may
produce small to moderate hail, gusty winds, and blowing dust.

The threat for Wednesday through Friday will be the return of
very hot weather. Near record high temperatures from 105-111 with
warmer than normal nights with minimum temperatures in the upper
70s to possibly the lower 80s. These conditions will mostly
likely necessitate heat advisories for health concerns.

For the weekend a backdoor front from the east will enter the area
from the east. This should drop afternoon temperatures 10-15,
resulting in near normal readings. A return of moisture with the
east winds will likely also result in isolated to scattered rain
showers and thunderstorms.


Spotters are encouraged to call in reports of significant weather,
and weather effects, in real time to help the NWS facilitate
notification of the public to ongoing weather dangers.
