Much Cooler By Sunday.
A fairly strong fall-like cold front (the meteorological fall starts this Thursday) is forecast to move into SE NM and W TX on Sunday. This will be the first major push of cooler air into the area of the season. If we are lucky enough we may only see our high temps in the 80's Sunday and Labor Day. Overnight low temps will drop down into the low 60's Monday morning, and a few spots may even dip down into the 50's.

Yesterday Was Just Downright Hot!
Yesterday was really hot across SE NM. The highest reading I could find was 110 at the Paduca Raws, which is located near the WIPP Site. Not far behind was my 108 here at the house in Carlsbad, 107 at both the Carlsbad Climate Coop Station, and the Carlsbad Airport ASOS. The 8-Mile Draw Raws located northeast of Roswel checked in with 106, while the Artesia Climate Coop Station recorded 105. Not to be left behind were the Roswell and Hobbs Airports with 104, as well as the Hobbs, and Tatum Climate Coop Stations.
Tropical Storm Katia
Still looking for a Tropical Storm (Lee) to develop over the Gulf of Mexico by Friday. A lot of uncertainty exists concerning the forecast track, and strength of this potential Tropical Storm/Hurricane. So anyone living along the Gulf of Mexico should keep up to date on this one. This Tropical Storm has the potential to bring some badly needed rainfall to South Texas, and nearby areas this holiday weekend.
