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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Southwesterly flow will return to the Borderland today gradually
ushering drier air back into the area. Most of the moisture will
be pushed off to the east through the day, but there could be
enough lingering by mid-day into the early afternoon hours to
spark off isolated to scattered thunderstorms over the higher
terrain of the Gila region and Sacramento Mountains. Some activity
could propogate into the lowlands of Sierra, Otero, and Hudspeth
Counties during the afternoon. Small hail and gusty winds will be
possible in the stronger cells. Outflows could create areas of
blowing dust and reduced visibilities. Activity is expected to
dissipate after sunset.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

West to southwesterly winds will become breezy each afternoon
Sunday through Tuesday. With drier air returning, the combination
with gusty winds could create periods of isolated elevated fire
weather conditions. High temperatures will remain in the upper 80s
to lower 90s. Otherwise, no hazardous weather is expected at this


Spotter activation will not be needed, though any reports of hail
or significant precipitation are appreciated.
