This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of south central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight
There is a marginal risk for severe storms again today across the
area. Similar to yesterday, storms will start by mid afternoon
over the higher terrain and move south onto the lowlands. The main
threat with these storms will be locally heavy rain, but some
stronger storms, especially east of the Rio Grande could
experience wind gusts over 50 mph and hail up to an inch in
diameter. Storms will be ending over the area by midnight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday
Storm coverage will be decreasing starting Monday with most storms
over the higher terrain with just isolated storms on the lowlands.
The threat for severe thunderstorms through the week is minimal,
but locally heavy rain could cause some localized flooding.

Spotter activation will not be needed today, but spotters are
encouraged to report any significant weather.
