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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Isolated showers and thunderstorms are expected today and
overnight. Instability and dynamics are improved today so some
storms will likely become strong to severe. Isolated storms may
produce moderate to large hail and strong damaging outflow winds.
Blowing dust may be lofted and dangerously reduce visibility over
dust-prone areas. Abundant moisture may also allow for some storms
to produce heavy rain and a slight risk of flash flooding.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Isolated to scattered shower and thunderstorm activity possible
through early Friday morning for eastern areas. Breezy to windy
afternoons Friday and Saturday may cause blowing dust and low
visibility concerns over the Southwest Deserts. Otherwise conditions
become benign for the rest of the period beginning mid-day Friday
as dry air moves in.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotters are encouraged to report any occurrence of significant
weather to the NWS or local law enforcement officials.
