Wild & Windy Yesterday - Blustery Today.


RTMA Temperatures @ 4 AM MST This Morning.

A wild day yesterday weather-wise. Blizzard conditions in northeastern Colorado, and overnight in northeastern New Mexico.  Severe thunderstorms produced damaging winds, large hail, and even a couple of long track large tornadoes in the Texas Panhandle. Peak wind gusts in the local area were impressive as well. Today will be blustery and cooler. Wind Advisories continue in effect for the local area. 



As of  5 AM MST This Morning.

I had a thunderstorm yesterday afternoon at the Red Hills Gas Plant located 21 miles west-northwest of Jal in Lea County. We had very heavy rain and pea size hail off and on for 30 minutes.

Reported Peak Wind Gusts As Of 5 AM MST This Morning.



A strong Pacific cold front blew eastward across New Mexico yesterday afternoon. With it came some very strong westerly wind gusts. The strongest was 97 mph at the automated weather station located in San Augustine Pass in the Organ mountains east of Las Cruces. The automated weather station at the Carlsbad Caverns National Park Headquarters (Bat Draw) recorded a gust to 77 mph. The automated weather station located just north of Guadalupe Peak in the Bowl (Bowl Raws) reported a peak gust of 77 mph. Guadalupe Pass also had very high winds but the wind equiptment quit reporting for some reason.


A Blizzard Warning continues in effect for northeastern New Mexico until 5 PM MST this afternoon. Close to a foot of new snow could fall near the Colorado state line with whiteout conditions. 


Severe thunderstorms will once again break out from eastern Texas northeastward into the south-central US. Tornadoes are again on the hazard list.
