October in New Mexico can be an interesting month weather-wise, and this month is living up to that reputation. Most of our local reporting stations recorded their lowest temperatures of the season so far, most of them in the mid 30's to near 40 Sunday morning. A sampling of some of the low temps reported Sunday morning include the following-

Dunken Raws 34
8-Mile Draw Raws 35
Roswell Airport 36

Tatum Mesonet 33
Hobbs Mesonet 35
Paduca Raws 35
Hobbs Climate 36
Artesia Airport 37
Caprock Raws 37
Queen Raws 38
Bat Draw Raws 40
Carlsbad Airport 42
Carlsbad Climate 42

Carrizozo Airport 34
Sierra Blanca Regional Airport 36

A flip back to summer-like temperatures are forecast across the southeastern plains today. Our afternoon highs will climb back up to near 90 to the low 90's. A cold front will push southward through the area tomorrow morning, and this will knock our highs back down into the 70's on Wednesday.

As a closed upper-level low located of the coast of California this morning works its way eastward into southern California Thursday and Friday, the dryline is forecast to sharpen up over eastern and southeastern New Mexico. Our chances for scattered thunderstorms will increase starting Wednesday afternoon, but more so Thursday into Friday.

Some of these thunderstorms may become severe on Thursday afternoon, but a better chance of this happening will occur on Friday. Large hail, damaging thunderstorm wind gusts in excess of 60 mph will be possible.
