As you may have noticed today was rather warm across New Mexico. A rather unusual high of 81F was noted at the Tucumcari Airport this afternoon. Today's highs were some 10-25 degrees above normal across the eastern one half of the state. Although my Davis Vantage Pro2 home weather station recorded a high temp today of 75F its a far cry from the record high temp in Carlsbad on this date of 85F set back in 1903. Similar readings are anticipated across southeastern New Mexico Saturday and Sunday. A few locations could reach or top 80-degrees on Saturday.
Enjoy the warmth while it lasts because it won't last. As we step into the beginning of the meteorological winter on Monday the next southward plunge of arctic air will be invading the eastern side of the state. Depending upon the timing of the arrival of the cold front our high temps may occur between sunrise and noontime. It appears our afternoon high temps will only be in the 40's. These temps will be some 15 degrees below normal. Low temperatures Tuesday morning will be in the teens and twenties across the local area.
