T-Storms West Of Carlsbad, NM Yesterday Afternoon.
Relief Courtesy Of An Unseasonably Strong Cold Front.
I have spent the better part of the morning fixing my web page. Something went wrong with blogger, and some of my links, and a few of my pages were dropped from my web page. Everything is back to normal now, except for my twitter feed...and I think that may be a twitter issue. I apologize for the problems folks, this was totally out of my control.
A strong cold front arrived in SE NM early this morning, about 12 hours ahead of schedule. What a welcome relief. It has brought overcast skies; cooler temps (60's & 70's) as of noon, with scattered rain showers, and a few thunderstorms dotting the landscape. A few strong to isolated severe thunderstorms will be possible over the area this afternoon and evening. Locally heavy rain, strong wind gusts, and frequent deadly cloud to ground lightning will be the main threats.
Our afternoon high temps should only be around 80 today, and the low-mid 80's tomorrow. Our overnight lows will be in the 50's- to near 60 the next couple of nights. Meteorological fall starts September 1st, and I can't wait. I have had enough of the heat and bugs.
Tropical Storm Frank continues to slowly crawl off to the WNW at around 5 mph. He is located about 145 miles SW of Acapulco, Mexico. We will have to continue to watch, and see if Franks remnant moisture gets pulled northward, and into the Desert Southwest early next week.
