Severe Weather Chances for The Southwest on Friday
An active weather pattern is setting up for the Southwest and Southern Rockies today. There will even be a Marginal risk of severe weather for southeast Arizona and southwest New Mexico.
THE WEATHER SET-UP
An amplified trough of low pressure moving through the Southwest will be the focus of showers and storms Friday. Some storms could be severe with large hail and damaging winds, but the tornado threat should be very low. Strong mid to upper-level winds, increasing humidity and warm temperatures will be the ingredients coming together later this afternoon.
The Storm Prediction Center has a Marginal risk of severe weather for parts of Arizona and New Mexico for Friday afternoon and evening.
Most of these storms will be heat driven, so once the sun goes down the severe risk will diminish. Here is a look at the Forecast Radar for the Southwest through Friday evening.
