NWS El Paso Severe Weather Outlook Today. NWS NDFD Rainfall Forecast Totals. (Today Through 6 AM MDT Monday). Weather Prediction Center 7-Day Rainfall Forecast Totals. Like a broken record that has been stuck in the same old grove playing the same song over and over again...our local weather forecasts once again promise rain and severe weather today into Saturday. All of the severe weather parameters will come in to play today, this evening, and again Saturday. This includes scattered supercell thunderstorms that will produce large hail, damaging thunderstorm wind gusts in excess of 60 mph, deadly cloud to ground lightning, locally heavy rains that may lead to localized flash flooding.  All I can say is look out when a storm does roll

Blog Updated At 7:26 AM MDT. Storm Prediction Center Severe Weather Outlook Today. NWS Midland Severe Weather Outlook Today. Weather Prediction Center Total Rainfall Forecast. Valid Today Through 6 PM MDT Monday. Latest Outlook From The Storm Prediction Center. (Issued At 6:55 AM MDT).  ...Eastern New Mexico to west/south Texas...    Initially, isolated strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible    this morning across the Edwards Plateau near the Rio Grande.

Although the dryline has been very active for the past week most of Southeastern New Mexico has missed out on the storms and thus the rain. The exception of course is Lea County and other New Mexico Counties located near the NM/TX State line. This is fairly common in May. May can either be bust or boom rainfall-wise for us and so far this year it has been mostly bust. Then you have southern and southeastern Kansas and northern and extreme northeastern Oklahoma where 10" to 15" of rain has fallen in the past week alone. Severe to historical flooding continues in many of those areas.  The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction - And Sometimes It Hurts!
