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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

A very moist atmosphere will combine with a passing disturbance to
generate widespread rain and thunderstorms this evening and
overnight across most of the region. The possibility of heavy
rainfall exists with some areas receiving well over an inch of
rainfall over the next 24 hours. This could result in areas of
flooding where the heaviest rainfall occurs. In addition, storms
will be capable of producing small hail and strong winds later
this afternoon and through the evening hours.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Rain chances will continue across the area, with Thursday being
the most active day. A heavy rain threat will continue Thursday
with rain and storm coverage becoming more scattered over the
weekend and early next week.


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