THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF NM AND TX.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT

THIS AFTERNOON LOOKS QUIET WITH GENERALLY DRY CONDITIONS ACROSS
THE REGION. THERE ARE LIKELY TO BE A FEW STORMS OVER THE MOUNTAINS
AND EVEN A COUPLE OF STORMS MAY FORM NEAR THE INTERNATIONAL BORDER
AREAS...ESPECIALLY THE BOOTHEEL OF NEW MEXICO AND SOUTHERN
HUDSPETH COUNTY IN FAR WEST TEXAS. TONIGHT A SHARP INCREASE IN
MOISTURE IS EXPECTED TO ARRIVE FROM THE SOUTH. ALONG WITH IT
SHOULD BE AN INCREASE IN SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT
GENERALLY OVER SOUTHERN AND WESTERN ZONES. SEVERE WEATHER THREAT
IS MINIMAL WITH THE PRIMARY THREAT BEING ISOLATED AREAS OF HEAVY
RAIN. HOWEVER MOST OF THE RAIN TONIGHT WILL BE ONLY MODERATE.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY

FRIDAY THE THICK SLUG OF MOISTURE WILL WORK FURTHER INTO THE AREA
ADDING INCREASED SHOWER AND STORM CHANCES TO THE RIO GRANDE
VALLEY...THE SACRAMENTO MOUNTAINS AND THE REST OF SOUTH CENTRAL
NEW MEXICO AND FAR WEST TEXAS. RAIN AMOUNTS ARE PROJECTED TO BE IN
THE .50" TO 1.10" RANGE OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS. PLENTY OF CLOUDS
AND MUCH COOLER TEMPERATURES WILL KEEP THE POTENTIAL FOR
WIDESPREAD THUNDERSTORMS AND INTENSE RAIN MINIMIZED. DRYING WORKS
IN...ESPECIALLY WEST SATURDAY AND REMAINS SUNDAY. THE REST OF THE
WEEK WE WILL HAVE ADEQUATE MOISTURE FOR DAYTIME AND EVENING
ISOLATED STORMS...BUT THREATS OF SIGNIFICANT IMPACT WEATHER LOOK
