A stormy week on the southern Plains will begin on Monday with the threat of severe thunderstorms over a swath of West Texas into nearby eastern New Mexico.

Scattered thunderstorms, a few of them potentially severe, will erupt during the afternoon and evening as a stream of warm, humid air flows in from the southeast.

Foremost severe threats will be that of wind and hail. Damaging wind gusts will top 60 mph in strongest storms. Localized large hail will also spew from strongest storms.

The severe local weather threat will last well into Monday night.

Further outbreaks of stormy, potentially severe weather will unfold over the southern half of the Plains on Wednesday and Thursday as yet another area of low pressure makes its way eastward from the Rockies.
