  Isolated damaging wind gusts to 70 mph possible

SUMMARY...Widely scattered supercell development is expected across
eastern New Mexico this afternoon, and storms will move generally
southeastward through late evening.  Large hail will be the primary
concern, though damaging gusts will become more of a threat if

northeast New Mexico this evening.

statute miles east and west of a line from 40 miles east northeast
of Raton NM to 40 miles east southeast of Guadalupe Pass TX. For a
complete depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline
update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU3).

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...
