Yesterday's afternoon high temperatures were about ten degrees cooler than forecast, with most locations seeing readings in the low 70's. A thick deck of mid-high level clouds kept El Sol from heating us up to the forecast highs. I did get up last night at 1 AM to see if I could get a photo of the historic Lunar Eclipse. Unfortunately our skies were overcast and I missed the shot.

Today will be unusually warm and breezy, not to mention dry. Our afternoon high temps are forecast to range from the upper 70's to the low 80's. Southwesterly winds should kick up at around 20-25 mph, with a few higher gusts possible.

An upper level trough of low pressure is forecast by the models, to move eastward across the state Wednesday and Thursday. A cold front is forecast to back-door into SE NM on Wednesday. This will keep our highs on Wednesday and Thursday from near 70 to the low 70's. Low level easterly upslope flow is forecast to increase over the area Wednesday night behind the front, therefore areas fog and light drizzle may develop into Thursday morning. 

Christmas Eve will be cooler with afternoon high temps in the mid-upper 50's. Christmas Day will be seasonably cool with afternoon high temps in the low-mid 50's. A few light rain and snow showers may break out over the Sacramento Mountains Wednesday night into Thursday. The snow level will be high, generally above 8,000'-9,000', and no significant accumulations are anticipated at this time.
