100-Degree Heat For The Weekend.


A hot weekend is on tap as our forecast high temperatures should easily reach the century mark across the southeast plains. This comes in contrast to this weeks record low temperatures that ranged from 28 in Tatum, 29 in Arteisa, 31 in Roswell, to the mid 30's in the Carlsbad area.

By Monday the next upper level trough of low pressure will be approaching the Four Corners. As has been the case since last fall, this storm will also track across northern New Mexico leaving us in the hot, dry, windy zone.

Southwesterly winds will kick up across the area Monday and Tuesday with gusts in the neighborhood of 40-50 mph. Mondays high temps will be at least in the upper 90's. So Critically Dangerous Fire Weather Conditions will return into the middle of next week.

Rain will continue to avoid the area while the drought worsens. My last measurable rainfall here at the house in Carlsbad was Feb 3rd when I recorded .02". My total rainfall since Jan 1st is only a meager .23", and only .36" has fallen since last Oct 1st.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
