I shot these yesterday morning in Carlsbad, New Mexico. Overcast skies with morning rain and snow showers  prevailed across SE NM. Can you see the fog forming  on the river in pictures #3 & #4?
Fall Was In The Air Yesterday.
I love days like yesterday. The overcast skies, rain and snow showers, and brisk northerly winds along with high temperatures only in the 40's, was a welcome relief from this summers unrelenting heat. I built the seasons first fire in our fireplace and still have it going this morning.
Today will be seasonably chilly with highs in the upper 50's to low 60's. A gorgeous weekend is in store for the local area with highs in the 70's. Overnight lows will continue to be in the 30's and 40's.
Our next shot at inclement weather will arrive the middle of next week as another upper level storm and cold front bear down upon SE NM.
