November is going to end with above normal temperatures for southeastern New Mexico and nearby areas, and December is going to start out on the same path. Our afternoon highs today are forecast to rise up into the mid - upper 70's. Friday's highs will be a few degrees warmer with most of us seeing highs close to 80. A repeat of these temps will occur Saturday into Monday with highs ranging from the mid 70's to near 80.

 There simply isn't much to say except that we are going to see another stretch of warmer than normal temperatures starting today, and continuing into at least the first of next week. A few daily record high temperature records may be threatened in parts of the area over the next five days.

Our high temps are forecast to be in the low 70's today, and the mid to upper 70's Thursday into next Monday. A few of us may even see 80-degree readings a couple of times.

06Z/11 PM MST GFS 500 MB Analysis.
NWS HPC 5-Day Rainfall Totals Forecast.

A complex and potent upper-level storm located off the Pacific Northwest Coast (see the GFS 500 MB map above) will send a series of powerful storm into that region this week. Five day rainfall totals at the lower elevations of the Pacific Northwest are forecast to range from 10" - 15" in some spots. What these folks will get over the next five days (rainfall totals) is about what we get here in southeastern New Mexico all year long. That's impressive stuff!
