Few T-Storms Over Central NM.
A rather boring pattern continues to keep SE NM rain free. A small cluster of t-storms over Central New Mexico early this evening, is drifting off to the southeast. Some of these storms may hold together long enough to produce some very limited rainfall tonight, but don't hold your breath, or get your hopes up.
Another cold front is forecast to enter the area by the middle of next week. This will be our next real change in our local weather with cooler temps behind it and a shot at t-storms. Our temps are going to climb back up into the 90's Sunday into next Wednesday. At least we have ended the seemingly endless streak of 100-degree days. And the nights are starting to cool off some.
I never dreamed that it would be this dry in SE NM. I am beginning to think that I may not even record two inches of rain here at my home in Carlsbad for the year. My year-to-date rainfall is a pitiful 1.59". This is fairly typical for the local area, some spots have had a little more rain than I have, most have had less. Its just unbelievably dry, and I don't see anything in the long-range models to give us any hope for relief from this historic drought.
