Isolated T- Storms Possible Today. Today's Storm Prediction Center (SPC) Severe Weather Outlook. Limited low-level moisture and instability combined with a shortwave traversing the area will combine with afternoon heating to produce a few isolated to widely scattered thunderstorms this afternoon and evening across the southeastern plains. Downdraft cape values (DCAPE) in excess of 1,000 j/kg suggest that the main severe weather threat from these thunderstorms will be strong wind gusts in excess of 58 mph. Small hail could also occur with the strongest storms perhaps up to around nickel size. A few of the strongest storms may produce moderate to locally heavy rainfall. Overall most of us will not get wet. Of concern will be any dry lightning strikes that may start a few wildfires.  Strong West Winds Return. NWS NDFD Peak Wind Gust Forecast. Valid At 6 PM MDT Wednesday. NWS El Paso Peak Wind Gust Forecast. Southwesterly winds will begin to pick up Tuesday afternoon ahead of a strong

Storm Prediction Center Day One Outlook. Valid From 7 AM MDT Sunday - 6 AM MDT Monday. NWS Midland Outlook This Easter Sunday. NWS Albuquerque Outlook This Easter Sunday. National Blend Of Models (NBM) Rainfall Forecast. Valid Today - 8 AM MDT Monday. Marginal Risk For Severe T-Storms. Happy Easter everyone. Our first risk (marginal) of this spring for a few severe thunderstorms this afternoon and evening is shaping up. Enough low-level moisture, instability, and wind shear will aide in the development of isolated to scattered thunderstorms as a shortwave mid-level trough of low pressure swings southeast across the area. These thunderstorms will develop first across eastern New Mexico this afternoon as they continue moving to the southeast into this evening. Here in southeastern New Mexico we may also see a few isolated to widely scattered thunderstorms with the best window for these to impact the local area between 6 PM MDT and Midnight tonight. Any thunderstorm that develops will be
