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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Deep, deep moisture will combine with moderate daytime instability
for isolated to scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Wet
ground from recent rains and heavy rainfall will result in local
areas of flash flooding. This evening and overnight a disturbance
will move over the region allowing for increasing rainfall
coverage and intensity. This is expected to result in areal
flooding across the region. Flooding along area rivers is also
possible with this scenario.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

We continue the heavy rain event through Saturday, with flooding
potential continuing moderate across the region. The system
responsible for the increase rain potential across the area will
exit the region late Saturday. We will slight reductions in
moisture, instability, and dynamics as we move into early next
week. However we look to keep plenty of moisture to act as fuel
for continued daily rounds of showers and thunderstorms...
although their coverage should be decreasing. Due to expected
soggy conditions from this weekends heavy rain, the flood
potential, although less likely over any area, will continue.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotters are encouraged to stay vigilant today through Saturday
for heavy rain and flooding. Please be quick to call the NWS
office with reports of heavy rain, rainfall totals, and observed
flooding.
