HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!

Arctic Air Has Arrived In SE NM.


I would like to wish all of you who visit this web page a Happy Thanksgiving. I hope that this will be a great day for all of you, your family and loved ones. Thanks for stopping by. :)


An arctic cold front has arrived in most of SE NM as of 5:30 AM MST this Thanksgiving morning.  Temperatures are slowly falling across the area as the frontal boundary pushes eastward and southward into West Texas.

At 5:30 AM MST temps across the local area ranged from 55 at the Bat Draw Raws at Carlsbad Caverns National Park, 50 at the Carlsbad Airport, 49 at my home in NW Carlsbad, 42 at the Artesia Airport, 36 at the Roswell Airport, 36 in South Hobbs, 34 at the 8-Mile Draw Raws, 32 in Lovington, 28 in Tatum, 20 in Santa Rosa, and 20 in Clovis. Most of the reporting stations in the Sacramento Mountains were in the upper 20's to low 30's.

Today will be colder with most of the lower elevation locations struggling to get out of the 40's, and the mountain communities the 30's. The arctic airmass is shallow, so it won't stick around long.


Tonight will be the coldest night of the season so far. Most of us will see overnight low temperatures dipping down into the teens. Some of the normally colder spots may see lows in the single digits by sunrise tomorrow morning. A few stations may flirt with a new record low for the date, see the list below.

 A few light snow showers are being picked up by area radars at 5:30 AM MST, generally south of a Gallup to Santa Fe line, south to just south of Socorro. These snow showers will reach the Sacramento Mountains today, but no significant accumulations are anticipated at this time.


You can see this by viewing "My SE NM Radar" above, currently seen on the Albuquerque Radar. Be sure to check the "Winterize Box". 


After a cold morning tomorrow, the sun will quickly heat up the atmosphere with most of us seeing afternoon high temps in the 50's. Saturday will be in the 60's, and the 70's return for Sunday. 


The next upper level storm is forecast to sweep across northern New Mexico Sunday and Monday. This means more strong southwesterly winds for us and a continuation of the very dry conditions.
