Strong Cold Front On Its Way South To SE NM.

Forecast Position Of The Cold Front At 6 AM Wed.
Forecast Position Of The Cold Front At Noon Wed.

High Winds & Blowing Dust Arrive With The Cold Front Wed Morning.

A fast moving cold front will bring about a dramatic change in our local weather Wednesday morning. Sunny skies and temperatures in the 80's this afternoon will come to an abrupt halt tomorrow, as yet another strong cold front enters SE NM. Highs tomorrow will struggle to get much above 60-degrees.

A Wind Advisory has been issued for Lea County for Wednesday starting at noon and continuing until 5 PM MDT. Northwest winds accompanying the frontal passage will become sustained at around 25-35 mph with gusts to near 50 mph.

 Similar conditions will exist across the rest of SE NM Wednesday morning as the cold front roars southward. I will not be surprised to see additional Wind Advisories issued for the other parts of the local area for tomorrow.

Areas of blowing dust will develop along and behind the cold front tomorrow morning. Visibilities in some locations may rapidly drop down to less than 2 miles. Some locations near open fields, exposed or freshly plowed farmlands, open lots, and construction sites may even experience visibility drops down to less than one mile with little to no advanced warning.

A Freeze Watch has been issued for Lea and Eddy Counties for late Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Overnight low temperatures by Thursday morning are expected to dip down into the mid-upper 20's. A killing freeze is expected in these areas by Thursday morning.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
