Unusually Warm This Week.

This Was Taken Just North Of Lakewood, NM. Looking 
North At A Convective Snow Shower 2-6-2011.
The Air Temp Was 50F South Of The Shower.
Snow Pellets & Sleet Were Falling In Atoka By The Time
We Arrived At My Brothers Home 10 Minutes Later. The
Air Temp Dropped To 36F In Minutes.

A Little Cooler Today.

A weak cold front dropping southward into the local area this morning will knock our daytime high temps back down into the low-mid 60's today. I reached a balmy 79F yesterday afternoon here at the house. Just think, ten days ago my low here in town was -1F, while the Carlsbad Airport reported -4F, the Artesia Airport -6F, the Artesia Climate Coop Station -9F, and the Roswell Airport -11F

More unusually warm weather is in store for SE NM this week. We will see our afternoon highs climb back up into the low-mid 80's from Tuesday into Thursday. And with the warmth comes the wind. As the flow aloft and at the surface becomes southwesterly, strong southwesterly winds will return to the area Wednesday, and especially on Thursday. The Fire Weather Danger will ramp up Wednesday and Thursday.

A Pacific storm will plow into the Desert Southwest late this week into the weekend. A stronger cold front will impact the area late in the weekend, along with the possibility of another intrusion of arctic air the first of next week.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
