BACK DOOR FRONT MOVES WEST ACROSS THE REGION BRINGING AMPLE MOISTURE
AND AN UNSTABLE ATMOSPHERE. THIS WILL ALLOW THUNDERSTORMS TO
DEVELOP...SATURDAY AFTERNOON EAST OF THE RIO GRANDE VALLEY...AND

STORMS COULD PRODUCE LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING WINDS. AREAS OF HEAVY
RAINFALL WITH LOCAL FLOODING ARE ALSO POSSIBLE...ESPECIALLY EAST
OF THE RIO GRANDE VALLEY. THUNDERSTORMS WILL LIKELY CONTINUE
MONDAY AND TUESDAY...THOUGH COVERAGE AND STRENGTH OF STORMS WILL
DECREASE.
