.NOW...
THROUGH MID EVENING A FEW SHOWERS AND OCCASIONALLY A SHORT LIVED
THUNDERSTORM OR TWO WILL MOVE TO THE EAST AND NORTHEAST AT 15 TO 20
MPH ACROSS LOCALES NEAR AND ESPECIALLY WEST OF A LINE FROM CIMARRON
TO THE BOSQUE DEL APACHE. DUE TO THE DRYNESS OF THE ATMOSPHERE MUCH
OF THE PRECIPITATION WILL NOT REACH THE GROUND...BUT IN THE MOST
SIGNIFICANT SHOWERS AND SHORT LIVED STORMS A FEW HUNDREDTHS OF AN
INCH OF RAIN MAY REACH THE GROUND. OF MORE CONCERN IS THE
POTENTIAL OF THE STRONGER ACTIVITY TO PRODUCE BRIEF SUDDEN WIND
GUSTS UP TO 40 MPH ALONG WITH A LIGHTNING STRIKE OR TWO. AT THE
HIGHER ELEVATIONS...MAINLY ABOVE 9000 FEET...A LITTLE SNOW WILL FALL
AT TIMES...BUT ANY ACCUMULATIONS SHOULD FOR THE MOST PART REMAIN
UNDER AN INCH THROUGH MID EVENING. CLOSE TO THE FOUR CORNERS ITSELF
THERE MAY BE SOME INCREASE IN SHOWER ACTIVITY DURING THE EVENING.
