Roundup Of Today's Peak Winds & Northern New Mexico Snowfall.



Another day of high winds in New Mexico and West Texas and thankfully not as much blowing dust today as yesterday. Meanwhile Northern New Mexico gets a visit from Old Man Winter.






After reaching 94º for an afternoon high yesterday here at our home in Carlsbad, today's readings are some fifteen degrees cooler across Southeastern New Mexico. So far my afternoon high has been 80º as of 4 PM MDT. Meanwhile temps were in the 20's and 30's across far Northeastern New Mexico where a Blizzard Warning was issued today.

Tonight will be colder across the state with low temperatures locally here in Southeastern New Mexico dipping down into the mid to upper 30's to near 40 by sunrise Saturday morning. Its possible that a few pockets of freezing temps will occur over the higher mountain valleys of the Sacramento Mountains and perhaps in the Northern Pecos Valley near Roswell.



Wow what a curl in the water vapor satellite image this afternoon. Meaning that the closed mid-upper level low shows up nicely on the image above. The dark oranges and reds indicate dry air wrapping around the closed low aloft in a counterclockwise manner, while the purple and white shades indicate moisture. 






Strong westerly winds raked the area all night into early this afternoon. Carlsbad Caverns (Bat Draw) clocked a peak wind gust to 72 mph.

GFS Surface Precipitation Type Forecast.

Next in line of the parade of storms to affect the region next week will be a closed mid-upper level low by around next Tuesday. This storm promises to bring more rain and snow to parts of Western and Northern New Mexico and once again the dryline should light up near the NM/TX State Line with the possibility of more Severe Thunderstorms.
