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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Scattered to isolated showers and thunderstorms will spread over
northern and central New Mexico from the southwest and west today.
Stronger storms will be capable of producing erratic wind gusts up
to 50 mph, brief downpours, small hail, and cloud-to-ground

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Friday night through Saturday night, isolated strong to severe
thunderstorms will be possible across the eastern plains.

Saturday night through Sunday night, the potential exists for heavy
rainfall from the south central mountains northeastward across the
Caprock including Roswell and Clovis. Generally 1.5 to 2.5 inches of
rain are expected with locally heavier amounts that could lead to
flash flooding in urban areas and areas of complex terrain. Locally
heavy rainfall is also expected farther north along the central
mountain chain, with a risk of flash flooding below recent burn

Monday through the middle of next week, daily rounds of showers and
thunderstorms will be capable of producing locally heavy rainfall
along and east of the continental divide where there will be a risk
of flash flooding below burn scars.
