At 500 PM MDT...scattered showers with light to moderate rain
continued to slowly march from west to east across southwest and
south central New Mexico and Far West Texas. Very isolated, weak
thunderstorms were also forming for very brief periods. The
primary impacts with these showers are the gusty winds and blowing
dust they are producing. Most areas will only see light rain, but
wind gusts up to 50 mph are more likely. Some locations, near
dust prone regions, may see visibility dangerously reduced to
under a mile. This will make for hazardous driving conditions.
Shower activity is expected to diminish this evening and become
more isolated overnight.
