Lea County New Mexico Sunset. 8-9-2015.
If you've been thinking that August has been unusually hot so far in southeastern New Mexico then you are correct. Carlsbad has recorded a high temperature at the airport of 107°F on three different days. Roswell has also topped out at the airport at 107°F. Artesia has topped out at 105°F at the SEBS AG Science Center. Tatum has reached 101°F and Hobbs has recorded a high of 99°F on five days. Cloudcroft in the southern Sacramento mountains at 8,751' has recorded a high temperature of 78°F twice now. Some of these readings are new daily high temperature records and I will post more on this in a couple of days.
