3" Of Rain Falls Over The Sac's Instead Of 3' Of Snow!


Our 2 Yr Old Grandson Checking Out Our XMAS Decorations Thanksgiving Night. 

For some New Mexicans this latest winter storm will go down in history as a huge bust as far as snow goes. For others we will remember it for the icing, and the moderate to heavy rains that fell instead of snow. I knew this storm would be full of surprises and it didn't disappoint.



Three Day Storm Total Rainfall Amounts.
(November 25th - 28th, 2015).







Amazingly enough but Ski Apache with a base of 9,600' and Cloudcroft at an elevation of 8,750' in the Sacramento mountains both missed out on what could or should have been a decent snowfall event. The three day rainfall (not snowfall) total for the Sierra Blanca Snotel Site located near Ski Apache at an elevation of 10, 280' is 3.70".

A CoCoRaHS Station located 2.3 miles south of Cloudcroft reported 3.37" of rain, and no snowfall. The Sunspot CoCoRaHS Station reported 3.25" of rain and no snowfall. The Cloudcroft CoCoRaHS Station 0.4 miles ESE of downtown reported 2.79" of rain and now snowfall. The CoCoRaHS Station located 4.6 miles south-southeast of  Nogal recorded 1.32" of rain and 1.4" of snowfall. 

I recorded 1.26" of rainfall at the Gas Plant that I am employed at located 21 miles WNW of Jal in Lea County. We had light freezing drizzle and light freezing rain overnight with 1/16th of ice coating everything this morning. Only a trace of freezing rain and freezing drizzle was recorded at our home in Carlsbad. My three day rainfall total is .28".
