We should be grateful that March so far has been rather tame considering its usually a fairly nasty month weather-wise. An upper-level disturbance will drop southward into southern New Mexico by tonight. This disturbance will be accompanied by a cold front. 
Red Flag Warnings are in effect today for the local area...so please avoid any outdoor activity that involves the use of sparks or flame. It won't take much for an accidental fire to quickly get out of hand and rapidly grow and spread in today's gusty winds combined wit…

Northerly Winds Gusting Up To 50 MPH & Blowing Dust Tonight.

Image
Temperatures @ 3 PM MDT Today.




Wind Advisory.
My high temp here at our home in Carlsbad this afternoon so far has been a balmy 86F. By this time tomorrow we should be about 30-degrees colder. Most of us will see highs only in the 50's.
A strong southward moving cold front will arrive in southeastern New Mexico later tonight. Gusty northerly winds and falling temps along with blowing dust can be expected as the front arrives. Clayton in northeastern New Mexico had a visibility of only 13/4 of a mile in blowing dust at 4 PM MDT. Northerly winds sustained at around 25 - 35 mph with gusts near 50 mph are forecast mainly after 8 PM MDT for Eddy County.
