This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of north and central
New Mexico.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Wind gusts to 50 mph are expected this afternoon across the Sangre
de Cristo Mountains, Northeast Highlands, and around Taos.

There is a marginal risk of severe thunderstorms this afternoon and
evening across much of the eastern plains. Locally heavy rainfall is
also expected with some storms tonight with minor flooding possible.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

The potential exists for flash flooding to develop across portions of
the eastern plains on Saturday and Saturday evening as a deep stream
of subtropical moisture persists over the area causing heavy rain to
intensify and become more widespread. By Sunday the ground will
probably be saturated in many areas producing a greater sensitivity
to flash flooding in counties along New Mexico`s eastern border,
where periods of heavy rain may continue into Sunday evening. By
Sunday evening 1 to 3 inch rain amounts will be common across the
eastern plains, with locally near 5 inches across east central and
northeast areas. There will also be a risk of strong to severe
thunderstorms again across southeast areas Saturday afternoon and
evening, and in counties along the Texas border on Sunday.


Spotter activation may be required across portions of the eastern
plains each afternoon and evening today through Sunday.
