Wednesday was another scorcher for mid September in southeastern New Mexico. Carlsbad hit 100°F and I recorded 102°F here at our home. Today will be similar perhaps a few degrees cooler. Scattered thunderstorms will pop up this afternoon and evening.
As a cold front approaches late Friday afternoon into the overnight hours additional thunderstorms will dot the local area. Some of these may produce locally heavy rainfall totals of 1" to 2" by Sunday evening. Saturday will be some 15-20 degrees cooler behind the cold front with highs in the 70's and 80's across the local area.
