Strong thunderstorms will develop late this afternoon along and east of a dry line, and a few could become severe. These storms will spread east across much of the area this evening. Primary concerns for severe weather will be wind gusts and large hail. An isolated tornado is a lesser chance. Strong southerly winds of 30 to 35 mph will also develop along with gusts to 50 mph and perhaps areas of blowing dust. Fire weather concerns will be greatest near the New Mexico line.
