Unusually Warm Today!
GFS Surface Map Forecast At 11 AM MST Today. Temperature Anomalies (Celsius). 
Take a look at the map above...it depicts today's temperature anomalies (measured in Celsius) across  the local area, at 11 AM MST this morning. Forecast temperatures at this time will be running some 15-degrees Celsius (about 20 -25 degrees Fahrenheit) above normal.
Our forecast high temperatures across southeastern New Mexico today will for the most part be in the low 70's. This is in stark contrast to Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day when we had 10" - 12" of snow on the ground in Carlsbad and Loving, 10" - 11.5" on the ground in the Roswell and Hagerman areas, 10" on the ground in Artesia, and 7" - 8" in the Tatum and Hobbs areas.  You gotta love the diversity of our local weather...one thing for certain, its not boring that's for sure.

A historic drought, high winds, record heat, wild fires, bitter cold, and heavy snowfall, all characterized our weather this past year. Here is a very limited look back at our local weather in 2011.
