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

An excessive heat advisory is in effect for today.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Hot near record temperatures are expected this afternoon with
most areas seeing the hottest temperatures of the year so far.
Lowland deserts will have afternoon temperatures ranging from
105 to 110 with well above normal temperatures in the mountains.

In addition, isolated to scattered thunderstorms are expected
to develop this afternoon. These high based storms will produce
brief periods of rain and strong wind gusts. Wind gusts over 50
mph will be possible near storms. The strong winds will also
transport smoke into the area as well as stir up and produce
blowing dust for the desert lowlands and major metro areas this
afternoon and early evening. Storms and winds will diminish later
this evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

Warm temperatures varying from seasonal to above normal will
continue through the week. Scattered mountain and isolated lowland
thunderstorms will occur each afternoon and early evening. Many of
these storms will be high based, producing light spotty rainfall
and strong winds gusts and blowing dust.


Spotter activation will not be needed.
