It Will Feel More Like Late October In SE NM Today Than Late May.





Brrrrrrrrrrrr...its flat out chilly out there this morning. Currently my thermometer says its 53°F here at our home in Carlsbad, NM. Current NWS forecasts call for high temps to day in the upper 50's to low 60's across the southeastern plains. So this means that we have a chance of tying or breaking our record low-max temps for the date today. Which are listed below:

Roswell 62°F in 1900
Artesia 55°F in 2003
Carlsbad 55°F in 2003
Hobbs 64°F in 1943

Overcast skies with areas of fog and light drizzle/mist encompass the local area this morning. Areas of rain and scattered thunderstorms are forecast this afternoon into tonight. Locally heavy rainfall will be possible in some spots with storm totals approaching or exceeding 1.00" by Friday night. 

Severe Weather In SE NM Friday?

RAP 500 MB Analysis @ 9 AM MDT This Morning.

Valid For Friday, May 22, 2015. 

As a stronger upper level disturbance rotates northeastward towards the local area this afternoon and evening we should see an increase in rain and scattered thunderstorms. Currently it does not appear that these storms will become severe here in SE NM.

This will not be the case on Friday. The Storm Prediction Center has already placed SE NM and parts of W TX in the Slight Risk Category for Severe Thunderstorms Friday afternoon and evening. So heads up folks!

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
