July was a cool and wet month (relatively speaking) for southeastern New Mexico. August is starting off much drier and warmer. My low temp here at my home in Carlsbad this morning has been 73F. Our overnight lows have been averaging a few degrees above normal, but they are nowhere close to being records. Today's forecast high temps are expected to be close to the century mark across the local area. Wednesday's forecast high for Carlsbad is 104.
Little overall change is forecast for the near future. Warm overnight lows, continued hot afternoons, combined with just enough humidity to make the heat feel a little worse than what it is, will dominate our local weather the rest of this week. A few hit and miss isolated thunderstorms will pop up across the southeastern plains from time to time. Thunderstorms will be more numerous over and close to the mountains. Without a doubt the dog days of summer have arrived.
