.NOW...
AN AREA OF SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE OVER
SOUTHWESTERN NEW MEXICO THE NEXT TWO HOURS. INDIVIDUAL STORM CELLS
WILL MOVE TO THE NORTH AT ABOUT 20 MPH. BECAUSE OF THE VERY DRY
AIR IN THE LOWER LEVELS...MOST OF THE RAIN WILL EVAPORATE BEFORE
REACHING THE GROUND. HOWEVER...THIS WILL LEAD TO STRONG GUSTY
WINDS BELOW AND NEAR THE STORMS...WITH GUSTS IN EXCESS OF 50 MPH
POSSIBLE. LOCALIZED BLOWING DUST WITH VISIBILITIES BELOW 1 MILE
CAN BE EXPECTED WITH THESE STRONG OUTFLOW WINDS.
