THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF NM AND TX.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT

AS EXPECTED THE DEEP PLUME OF THICK MONSOONAL MOISTURE HAS
STREAMED OVER THE BORDERLAND AND IS CURRENTLY PROVIDING FOR MOSTLY
CLOUDY TO CLOUD CONDITIONS WITH COOL TEMPERATURES AND SCATTERED
RAIN SHOWERS FROM THE RIO GRANDE VALLEY EAST. THERE IS MINIMAL
THREAT IMPACT WITH THESE DO TO THE LOW RAIN INTENSITY AND LACK OF
STRONG DYNAMIC FORCING. TO THE WEST CLEARING IS TAKING PLACE. THE
WESTERN ZONES WILL SEE AN INCREASED CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORM
DEVELOPMENT BY EARLY AFTERNOON DUE TO MORE SUNSHINE AND SURFACE
HEATING. THE EAST MAY ALSO SEE STORMS LATE DAY IF THE CLOUDS BREAK
BY EARLY/MID AFTERNOON. FOR ALL AREAS THAT TO GET THUNDERSTORMS
THE RISKS ARE LIGHTNING...SMALL HAIL...AND MOSTLY HEAVY RAIN WITH
ISOLATED FLASH FLOODING.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY

DRYING WORKS IN FOR THE WEEKEND...ESPECIALLY WEST SATURDAY AND
SUNDAY. THE SOUTHEAST ZONES MAY KEEP ENOUGH MOISTURE TO KEEP
SHOWERS AND STORMS IN THE SCATTERED COVERAGE RANGE. ELSEWHERE ONLY
ISOLATED TO SLIGHT CHANCE. THE REST OF THE WEEK WE WILL HAVE
ADEQUATE MOISTURE FOR DAYTIME AND EVENING ISOLATED STORMS...BUT
THREATS OF SIGNIFICANT IMPACT WEATHER LOOK MINIMAL.
