... Rapid storm development expected across far West Texas and
southern New Mexico this afternoon...

1 PM MDT update: storms have been in progress across portions of
the higher terrain across southwest, and south central New Mexico
in both the Gila region and the southern Sacramento Mountains.
Recently storms are beginning to form across The Lowlands of the
southwestern deserts of New Mexico and in northern Chihuahua.
These storms will move to the east and north. Current storms are
moderate in strength, but additional storms will develop through
the afternoon with some of those storms becoming strong to severe.
The favored area for the strongest storms are over Dona Ana,
Otero, El Paso, and Hudspeth counties. Storms over these counties
may produce large hail, over an inch in size, and strong wind
gusts, over 60 mph. Thunderstorm development and coverage is
expected to increase rapidly across the region through the
afternoon and early evening hours. Expect scattered storms with
an increase in areal coverage and strength east of the Rio
Grande. If storms approach your location, take shelter and let the
storms pass before going back outdoors.
