Special Weather Web Video Briefing!

For all of the latest information on the Last Chance Fire that is currently burning west of Carlsbad, NM please visit this link- New Mexico Fire Information.

A Wind Advisory has been issued for southeastern New Mexico for today. Southwesterly winds are forecast to become sustained later this morning at around 25-35 mph with gusts this afternoon in the neighborhood of 50 mph.

A High Wind Watch has been issued for the area for Tuesday. Westerly to Northwesterly winds are forecast for the lower elevations of southeastern New Mexico at around 35-45 mph with gusts up to around 60 mph. A few stronger gusts may be experienced in the more wind prone areas and especially near the foothills and mountains.

A High Wind Warning continues in effect for the Guadalupe Mountains through 6 AM Wednesday morning. Southwesterly winds today and tonight are forecast to be sustained at around 35-50 mph with gusts near 65 mph. These winds will become westerly on Tuesday at around 40-55 mph with gusts near 75 mph. 

High profile as well as low profile vehicles may become subject to being blown off local roadways in the dangerously high cross winds later today and especially tomorrow. This will be especially true in the mountains and in Guadalupe Pass.

Areas of blowing dust are forecast to kick up this afternoon and will become even more widespread on Tuesday. Some of the more dust prone locations such as freshly plowed and open farmlands, fields, lots, and construction sites may experience sudden drops in the visibility down to near zero with little to no advanced warning. Smoke may potentially become a problem in and around the Carlsbad area due to the Last Chance Fire.

Red Flag Warnings and Fire Weather Watches have been issued for the entire area through Tuesday evening. Needless to say that Extremely Critically Dangerous Fire Weather Conditions continue to plague the area and will do so into Tuesday evening. Any wildfire that may break out will have the potential to rapidly spread and grow in the high winds. Please keep abreast of all local fire weather conditions and be prepared to act quickly in case local authorities call for evacuations in your vicinity.
