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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Moisture in beginning to trend downward once again, but there will
be enough still across the region for another round of later day
shower and thunderstorm development that will persist into the
evening hours. Storms are not expected to be severe, but the
potential for strong outflow winds with these storms is high. Thus
expect some storms to produce gusts above 50 mph with potential
for blowing dust and damaging winds.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Friday marks a transition day between our current monsoon moisture
laden atmosphere, and a new drier environment for the weekend and
early next week. Friday will bring a few storms to the region, but
their numbers should be fewer. Threats will be mostly lightning
and strong winds. The weekend, through Monday, should be mostly
void of storms. During this period elevated temperatures will
bring excessive heat concerns to the region. Tuesday and Wednesday
look to bring back moisture and storm threats. It appears we will
see more general thunderstorms with just minor threats for
significant impacts.


Spotters should report significant weather to local law
enforcement and this office via our Spotter phone number or via
Twitter using our office handle @NWSElPaso.
