Strong to marginally severe thunderstorms may impact parts of West Texas and southeastern New Mexico tomorrow afternoon and evening. Some of these storms may produce hail up to about an inch in diameter and wind gusts near 50 mph (give or take).

Thunderstorms may produce locally heavy rainfall. That won’t be the case, however, for most of the area. And some spots will remain dry.

Tuesday otherwise will be cloudy and breezy. Temperatures will peak in the 70s.
