It was hot in southeast New Mexico today but our heat was fairly mild compared to Oklahoma. Forecast high temperatures across Oklahoma for tomorrow are expected to be a few degrees warmer than today's readings. A few spots between Oklahoma City and Tulsa could exceed 115-120F. In fact the NAM model is forecasting temps of 115F or higher between Oklahoma City and Tulsa by as early as noon. That's remarkable!

Its hot out there! I do believe that the dog days of summer have arrived. A stubborn upper-level ridge of high pressure was centered over the Texas Panhandle today. For the most part this ridge will pretty much remain parked over the area into the weekend. The close proximity of the ridge has shunted our summer monsoonal flow westward into Arizona, leaving southeastern New Mexico high and dry.
  As of 3:30 PM here are some of our local afternoon high temperatures so far this afternoon:

A few scattered thunderstorms are forecast to pop up over the mountains today and to a lesser extent tomorrow. Its possible that a few of them may also develop over parts of the southeastern plains today, but overall say goodbye to the rain for awhile. 
A stout upper-level ridge of high pressure is forecast to dominate our weather late this weekend into the end of next week. Simply state its just going to be downright hot. Our afternoon high temperatures for most of next week will likely range from 100 to 105. A few spots may even top 105.

Once again a few scattered thunderstorms broke out over the southeastern plains yesterday. Some of these storms were still ongoing over the Sacramento Mountains as of 10 PM last night. Most of the rainfall reporting stations managed once again to miss the heavier rainfall totals in southeastern New Mexico. Most of these storms have been of the pulse-type, they pop up and dissipate rather quickly. Overall storm coverage has been rather disappointing so far the past couple of days.

A weak and slow moving cold front draped across the area will be the focus for thunderstorms today into Friday. The front will have little affect on our afternoon high temperatures. Our afternoon highs are forecast to be in the upper 90's today, the low-mid 90's on Friday, and the mid-upper 90's Saturday and Sunday.


Today's crop of thunderstorms will be capable of producing heavy rainfall which may lead to localized flash flooding. As has been the case so far this summer, and will continue to be the case for some time to come, the burn scar areas in the Guadalupe, Sacramento, and Capitan Mountains,  and locations below them, will be especially vulnerable to flash flooding. 


Please do not attempt to cross a flooded arroyo, flooded small streams, or other flood prone low lying areas. Most flash flood…
