Moist unstable air will begin flowing into southern New Mexico and west Texas later tonight and continue into the weekend into early next week. As a result there will be increasing shower and thunderstorm activity across the Borderland the next few days. Locally heavy rains may occur Saturday through Monday with flash flooding possible over a few areas. At this time it is not looking too good for eclipse viewing around noon Monday.
For today we will begin to see moisture return to the area. We will have a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms for locations east of the Rio Grande this afternoon and evening. Skies will become partly cloudy and temperatures will run a few degrees above average.
Abundant tropical moisture will begin to move back into the region on Saturday. By Saturday night numerous showers and thunderstorms will develop across the area. These storms will be capable of producing very heavy rain which could lead to flash flooding. A flash flood watch is in effect for Saturday evening through Monday morning.
