September Ends Cool & Wet In NM.


Family Stroll On A Beautiful Saturday Afternoon South Of Cloudcroft.

We took a drive south of Cloudcroft yesterday afternoon to go leaf peeping and found that the aspens in the higher elevations south of Cloudcroft have started to turn. They should peak over the next couple of weeks. It will be later this month into the first of November before the leaves turn across the lower valleys of the mountains.

A quick look through the CoCoRaHS Stations reveals that one of the wettest sites in New Mexico so far this year has been the Angel Fire 10.2 miles south-southeast of town with a September total of 6.77" and a year-to-date total of 30.65"

With the varied terrain of New Mexico and the different climate zones rainfall reports always varying sometimes by a little bit and many times by a lot. This depends upon elevation and location. Summertime thunderstorms are a good example of this. If you would like to see your home rainfall totals in these graphics...you can by joining CoCoRaHS today.
