Winter Weather Advisories continue in effect for the Cloudcroft and Ruidoso areas until noontime today. A total of 3" - 5" of snow is forecast above 7,000' with 1" - 3" below 7,000'. 

A few rain and or snow showers will be possible across southeastern New Mexico today, and tonight into Saturday. Our afternoon highs today will be in the mid 50's. A cold front along with another upper level storm will give us another shot at more light rain showers and snow showers on Saturday. Our daytime highs on Saturday will range from the mid 30's in the Clovis and Portales and Tuatum areas, to the upper 30's in Hobbs and near 40 for Roswell, Artesia, and Carlsbad. Lows Saturday night will drop down into the the upper teens to the low 20's.

Arctic Invasion Next Week.



Much of December's weather has been rather mild for New Mexico but this is coming to a grinding halt by Monday afternoon and evening. A powerful arctic cold front will plow southward down the eastern plains of the state late Monday afternoon and evening. By around midnight the front should be entering southeastern New Mexico. 

Valid @ 11 PM MST Monday, Dec 29, 2014.

Say goodbye to the warmth for next week...its getting shoved south deep into Mexico. Trust me you will know when this arctic cold front arrives. It will be marked by gusty north to northeast winds, rapidly falling temperatures with wind chills in the single digits and teens by sunrise Tuesday. Current model forecasts indicate that our temperatures in southeastern New Mexico will drop below freezing late Monday night...and not climb above freezing until the following Saturday. 

We very well could see our daily high temps next Tuesday into Friday ranging from the teens and twenties to near freezing. Its still early in the game but a turn for much colder weather seems fairly certain. 






Potent Winter Storm Mid-Week?

Valid @ 5 PM MST Thursday, Dec 31, 2014.

Valid @ 5 PM MST Thursday, Dec 31, 2014.

Valid @ 5 PM MST Tursday, Dec 31, 2014.

Model forecasts also indicate that a strong winter storm may impact New Mexico from mid-week into the weekend. Snow seems certain for many parts of the state with an arctic airmass firmly entrenched in place...but how much and for how long is still unknown.
