Severe storms have been firing across eastern New Mexico Wednesday afternoon. These storms will continue to pose a severe weather threat across the eastern half of New Mexico through tonight. Large hail, damaging winds, heavy rain will continue to be the biggest threats through the evening, but a couple tornadoes cannot be ruled out.

A couple storms could still turn severe near the Texas state line.
