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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight
Record heat continues to be the big story. Just enough moisture
exists for a few thunderstorms to develop mainly over higher
terrain and adjacent lowlands, with outflows possibly spawning a
storm or two over more distant lowlands such as the El Paso metro
(mainly evening hours). The latter is quite random under the
current scenario.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday
Friday...Similar to today. Record heat with a few afternoon storms
over higher terrain and random storms here and there over the
lowlands during the evening.

Saturday through Wednesday...A "cooling" trend with a slight
increase in thunderstorm coverage is in store. The upper high
responsible for our current record heat by this time will have
drifted west and northwest, and temperatures will decrease to a
little above normal (meaning still hot, just not at record
levels). Moisture will increase a little as well. What will need
to be watched for is any upper impulses within the northerly flow
as well as weak backdoor fronts. These could bring an uptick in
storms, making it more like a normal August for a few days? We can
only hope.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation will not be needed.
