Weather Authority Alert: Possible severe storms today across the borderland today


The possibility for scattered showers and thunderstorms remain in the forecast today.

Moist and unstable air will remain in the forecast today, meaning we are still tracking the possibility of severe storms.

Here is the what we are looking at for today:

  • If we don’t see storm formation start around noon into 2 p.m. we will see the chances for these storms lower.
  • But if we do see storm formation around noon into 2 p.m. we could see storms start to come in around 5 p.m.

We have all the energy, unstable air, and moisture in our atmosphere to see storms. But we need a trigger, in this case would be a dry line. If we don’t see this trigger come in, we will see our storm chances lower.

Most of the higher severe threats will stay to the east in Hudspeth, Otero, and Culberson Counties.

Today’s biggest storm threats look to be strong downburst winds and large hail. As of right now it looks 

Here is a look at your rain and thunderstorm chances:

  • Saturday: A 20% chance of scattered to wide spread showers. We will dry out around 2 p.m.
  • Sunday: A 20% chance of late evening storms, expected to spark up between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m.
