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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Widespread rains have fallen across the area last night and
through this morning. More rainfall and thunderstorms are
expected. With the ground becoming increasingly saturated,
additional heavy rain could lead to excessive runoff and flash
flooding. An additional 1 to 2 inches of rain is possible through
Tonight, especially for areas from the Rio Grand valley and

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

The threat of flash flooding persists through Monday,as a deep flow
of Monsoon driven moisture continues to stream northward over the
borderland. This could result in an additional 1 to 2 inches or
heavy rainfall...with isolated higher amounts. A few areas of 4
inch rain totals through Monday are possible. The widespread flash
flooding threat diminishes somewhat after Monday...however
isolated to scattered showers and storms are still expected each
day. Downburst winds...and localized flooding from heavy rainfall
and hail are the main threats.


Spotters are encouraged to report rainfall amounts by contacting
your El Paso area National Weather Service office...or by sending
reports via the web at http://weather.gov/epz.
