Warm & Windy Tuesday
Ahead Of A Fast Moving Cold Front.
So far March has failed to live up to its repetition of being chocked full of days with strong winds and blowing dust here in southeastern New Mexico. Not to worry a fast southward moving cold front tomorrow night will help March's repetition.
Sunny skies and rather tranquil conditions will prevail today with highs this afternoon in the 70's. Lee side troughing will develop tomorrow, which will help to tighten up the surface pressure gradient, which of course will produce strong gusty southwesterly winds over the local area...especially across the eastern plains.
As the cold front plows into the eastern plains tomorrow evening strong northerly winds sustained at around 30 - 45 mph will gust up to near 60 mph. Thus a High Wind Watch has been posted for the eastern plains of New Mexico for Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday night. Areas of blowing dust will also drop the visibility down to less than one mile at times.
These winds are not supposed to be quite as strong across southeastern New Mexico tomorrow. However we can expect to see northerly wind gusts up to near 50 mph with the frontal passage and for awhile afterwards. Areas of blowing dust will also plaque parts of the local area.
Our highs tomorrow will mostly be in the 80's. Wednesday will be cooler with the 50's common.
