Three changes in our local weather over the past few days.
1. No thunderstorms.
2. Lower relative humidity values and dew point temperatures. A couple of weeks ago we saw dew point temperatures in the upper 60's to the lower 70's here in SE NM. Now they are down into the upper 40's and lower 50's.
3. Our mornings are beginning to cool down. Lows for the past couple of days have been in the 50's verses the upper 60's to lower 70's.
The coolest low temperature in the Pecos Valley this morning was 53ºF at the Artesia Climate Co-Op Station located 6 miles south of town at the NMSU AG Science Center. This is the coolest reading for them since May 25th when they dipped down to 42ºF.
Welcome to the first day of the beginning of the meteorological fall. 😊
