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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight
Thunderstorm activity will be ramping up this afternoon and
especially this evening as an upper disturbance passes through.
Locally heavy rainfall and isolated flash flooding is possible,
especially in the Gila region locations where significant
rainfall has occurred the past day or so.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday
The weekend will have the greatest potential for widespread
thunderstorm activity. The big question will be where, as areas
with lingering cloud cover and leftover showers from overnight
storms will be slow to recover enough instability for another
round of storms. Based upon this, it would appear that west of
the Rio Grande will have the greatest storm (and localized
flooding) potential for Saturday afternoon, then spreading
eastward Saturday night and Sunday.

As next week progresses, thunderstorm coverage and chances will
decrease, especially western portion as drier westerly flow pushes
into the area. It could still be active east of the Rio Grande
however, but with less intense rainfall than over the weekend.
