It is one very hot day across SE NM today. As of 2 PM MDT. My thermometer here at my home in Carlsbad was reading 108. The Carlsbad Airport ASOS was registering 106, while the Paduca Raws, located near the WIPP Site was reporting 108. Other temps at 2 PM include, 104 at the Hobbs Airport, and 102 at both the Roswell and Artesia Airports.

Several stations have already broken their daily high temperature records for today, and a few are approaching their all-time monthly records. Its possible that we will see these readings go up another couple of degrees by 5 PM.

Relief appears to be on the horizon. The models continue to forecast a fairly decent cold front (the seasons first-remember the meteorological fall begins Thursday) dropping southward down the eastern plains of the state, and into SE NM by around Sunday. Our high temperatures may only be around 90 or so by Sunday and Labor Day. There also appears to be a decent chance for t-storms across the area as the front moves through.

Record High Temps For Aug 30th-

Roswell (ThreadEx Station) 101 1959
Artesia Climate 105 1918
Carlsbad Climate 102 1943
Carlsbad Arpt ASOS 104 1959
Hobbs Climate 104 1959

It, along with several other models, are also forecasting the development of a (Tropical Storm/Hurricane?) in the Gulf of Mexico by this weekend. Not to mention the the cold front moving into the local area as well. Without a doubt, the Labor Day holiday weekend is going to be an interesting one for us, and for those who live along the Gulf Coast.
