Snowing At Ski Apache This AM- More T-Storms & High Mtn Snows On The Way.





  

Wet Today Into Wednesday.






Scattered rain showers and a few thunderstorms popped up over the area yesterday afternoon and continued off and on overnight. It appears that heavy rains fell over the Sierra Blanca watershed near Ruidoso with storm totals so far between 1.00" and 3.50". Lighter rainfall totals fell across the rest of the local area. Ski Apache received its first seasonal snowfall as well. Rain is being reported this morning in Cloudcroft with a temp of 43F.

As the upper level storm to our west swings across the state today into tomorrow our chances for additional rain, thunderstorms, and high mountain snows will increase. If this mornings run of the NAM/WRF computer model (graphic above) is correct then the southeastern plains of New Mexico will get between .50" and 2.00" of rain out of this storm. 

Much colder air will invade the local area late tonight into Tuesday morning. Again if the NAM/WRF model is correct then we will only see our high temperatures tomorrow climb up into the mid 40's to near 50. Tuesday will be a raw, blustery, and wet day which will certainly make it feel like fall.

With clearing skies, light winds, and a colder and drier airmass in place some of us will experience our first freeze of the season Wednesday and Thursday morning.
