National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
140 PM MDT Wed Jul 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Moisture will remain in place over the region through the forecast
period. This will result in chances for wetting precip in the form
of isolated to scattered thunderstorms on a daily basis. As we
head into the weekend the focus for storms will slowly be
shifting over the western zones. Generally light winds will
prevail with gusty and erratic winds possible in and near
individual storms.
