(As Of 4 PM MST).
Temperatures across the eastern one half of New Mexico were some 15-25 degrees above normal again this afternoon. Note the high temperature of 81F at Alfadale (Atoka - 6 miles south of Artesia), and my high of 80F here at our home in Carlsbad. Sunday's afternoon high temps will be close to today's readings...about five degrees cooler.
Note the temperatures just across the US and Canadian border north of the arctic cold front...as low as -15F. This next arctic cold front is slated to arrive in southeastern New Mexico by Monday morning. It looks like most of us will not get out of the 40's Monday afternoon. So our highs Monday afternoon will be some 20-25 degrees below normal.
