SOME STORMS MAY BECOME STRONG TO NEAR SEVERE GIVING SOME
PENNY-SIZE HAIL AND WINDS TO 50 MPH.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY

ROLLER-COASTER MOISTURE LEVELS EXPECTED THOUGH THE PERIOD OVER THE
BORDERLAND AND MODELS ARE NOT IN AGREEMENT ON WHEN THE BEST RAIN
CHANCES OCCUR. HOWEVER LATE THURSDAY THROUGH FRIDAY LOOK PRIME FOR
SCATTERED TO WIDESPREAD RAIN AND POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY RAIN. BEYOND
THAT A SLIGHT DOWNWARD TREND IN STORM CHANCES FOR THE WEEKEND...BUT
STILL ALL AREAS WILL SEE AT LEAST ISOLATED STORMS. THERE ARE
HINTS OF ANOTHER SLUG OF MOISTURE TO MOVE IN MONDAY TO ONCE AGAIN
