What looks like to me in the photos above is a landspout tornado that formed between about 5:15 PM and 5:30 PM MDT yesterday, between Carlsbad and the airport. Landspout tornadoes are fairly common in New Mexico. Whether all of these photos is of the same landspout, or if there were more than one, I really am not sure. I didn't see it so I can't say for sure.  ------------------------------------------------------------- Alandspout is a…

I shot this beautiful sunset last Saturday in Lea County. A plume of smoke from the Silver Fire, near Kingston, New Mexico, northeast of Silver City, to our west created the colors in this sunset. The fire has now consumed some 100,000 acres and was started by dry lightning on June 7th.

Yesterday was another hot one. A high of 112F was noted at the 8-Mile Draw Raws which is located northeast of Roswell. this is the highest temperature that I have seen reported in southeastern New Mexico so far this summer. Both the Roswell and Carlsbad Airports recorded highs of 108F. I reached 107F on my Davis Vantage Pro2 home weather station here in Carlsbad. Jal recorded a high of 107F and Hope 106F. Today is expected to be hot with our afternoon highs once again climbing up to around 105F.

High temps today should be around 105F for most of southeastern New Mexico. Our local National Weather Service forecasts are backing off a little on tomorrow's forecast high temps, down about five degrees or so. However I wouldn't be surprised to see a few spots get close to 110F

Interesting change in our weather will occur if the European model is correct late this weekend into next week. This model is forecasting the mid-level of high pressure to move off to the northwest, as a mid-level trough of low pressure digs southward into the Mississippi River valley by Monday.
 This would create a northerly flow aloft over the area, thus the potential for thunderstorms to form o…

Haboob's & Heavy Rain Yesterday Afternoon.

Image
Artesia got hit with another haboob this afternoon as thunderstorms to the south, and southeast, produced outflow winds that gusted up to 54 mph at the airport at 3:55 PM MDT. I shot this photo near the southern city limits, on U.S. Hwy 285 at 3:47 PM. The visibility was down to less than 1/4 of a mile.

Late yesterday afternoon a haboob moved into Tatum from the northeast. Outflow winds from a strong thunderstorm to the northeast of Tatum generated this dust cloud. Courtesy Of Tatum Weather.
