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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Increased moisture behind a westward advancing frontal boundary
will lead to increased instability and low level convergent
forcing to produce isolated to scattered showers and storms. The
main threat will be strong outflow gusts, followed by small hail,
and isolated areas of brief heavy rain.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

A few storms may develop over the Southwestern NM mountains Friday
afternoon. The rest of the region should be mainly dry and free of
storms. For the weekend and into next week weather forecast models
differ greatly between generating storms and being completely dry.
Thus, despite there being some potential for storms, we currently
have very low confidence in this storm potential through this


Spotter activation is not necessary today. However, with storms
expected, spotters should call in reports of significant weather
and impacts in real time.
