A severe thunderstorm is in effect for Union and Roosevelt counties in eastern New Mexico until 9:00 PM MDT Saturday and for Cimarron, Dallam and Hartley counties in the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles until 10:00 PM CDT Saturday.

EXTENDED FORECAST – Storms are possible Saturday afternoon and evening and only a few could become severe, with golf ball-sized hail and 80 mph winds being the biggest threats. We cannot rule out the possibility of a tornado or two or localized flooding. Storm chances remain on Sunday afternoon, but our atmosphere has been good over the last 5 days, so make sure you stay on top of the weather forecasts, we’ve got your back. We will see rain chances decrease through the first half of next week and temperatures will continue to climb into the 90s, possibly reaching triple digits on Tuesday. We will continue to adjust temperatures day by day. Rain chances appear to appear in the weather forecasts again at the end of next week. Stay ready for the weather!
