Highs 5 to 10 degrees above average for late June are forecast the next three days. Heating of elevated terrain and increased monsoonal moisture will mean a chance of showers and storms developing each afternoon over the higher terrain of West Texas and Southeast New Mexico, especially from the Sacramento Mountains into the Guadalupe Mountains and down into the Davis Mountains. Lightning and gusty, erratic winds will be the main threats with any stronger storms.
