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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Moisture, daytime heating, upslope flow, and surface convergence
will all combine to create an unstable environment this
afternoon. The result will be the development of widespread
scattered showers and thunderstorms. Most storms will not become
severe, but a few may. Those strong to severe storms will produce
moderate-sized hail near 1 inch in size, gusty outflow winds up to
50 mph, local heavy rain with minor isolated flash flooding, and
areas of thick blowing dust.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

The region should see today`s weather repeat itself on
Wednesday. Thursday drier air will start to move into SW NM
resulting in spottier storm coverage in the Bootheel region.
Afternoon storms will continue elsewhere with the main threats
being strong wind gusts, lightning and localized heavy rainfall in
the desert arroyos of Hudspeth and Otero counties. Friday drier
air will push farther east with only Otero and Hudspeth counties
remaining moist enough for storms. Friday through the weekend
appear to be dry for all areas with no significant weather
hazards expected.

Spotters are urged to report significant weather, such as heavy
rain or flooding, hail, strong winds, blowing dust, in real time
to help with advisories and warnings.
