We've experienced several storms this winter that haven't exactly panned out the way the computer models have foretasted them too. Our storm Wednesday failed to produce the expected high winds and blowing dust, not that I'm upset about this, but its a little on the unusual side to see a bust on the winds. Generally that's a pretty easy forecast to get right.
Our next storm arrives on Sunday. If the GFS model (top map) forecast is correct, then more wind and dust for southeastern New Mexico on Sunday. If the European (middle map) model is right, still more wind and dust for us, but perhaps a little better chance for snow in the Sacramento's.
Westerly winds may gust up to around 35 to 40 mph on Sunday, possibly higher.
Highs today are forecast to range from 56 in Roswell, to 60 in Carlsbad. Saturday will be a little warmer with highs ranging from 68 in Roswell and Carlsbad, to 65 in Hobbs.
Cloudcroft is expecting a high today of 28, 38 on Saturday, and 33 on Sunday, along with a slight chance for light snow on Sunday. Ruidoso is expecting a high today of 40, 48 on Saturday, and 39 on Sunday, with a slight chance of snow.
