SUMMARY...A few strong to severe storms remain possible through the

DISCUSSION...A cluster of storms in eastern New Mexico is slowly
drifting southeastward with additional storms developing farther
east. MLCAPE is only around 500 to 1000 J/kg in this region with
effective shear at or below 20 kts per KFDX VWP. Given this somewhat
unfavorable environment, expect storm intensity to remain somewhat
muted through the evening. However, there is evidence a cold pool
has developed in Guadalupe county and it is moving toward an area
which is uncapped according to SPC mesoanalysis. Therefore, expect
additional storm development through the evening which should
continue to enforce/strengthen the cold pool. The aforementioned
lack of tropospheric flow should limit the overall intensity, but a
few strong to severe wind gusts is possible, especially with the
strongest storms (likely near the interaction with other outflow
boundaries currently across De Baca, Curry and Roosevelt counties.
