So Dry Out There - It Needs To Rain.
Looking West From US Hwy 285 From West Of Lakewood.
Forecast High Temperatures & Anomalies On Wednesday.
Cold Front To Arrive Around Midnight.
After seeing our afternoon highs today soar up into the low to mid 90's we will see them drop some 30 to 35-degrees tomorrow compared to today's readings. Most of Southeastern New Mexico is only forecast to see highs tomorrow from near 60 to the mid 60's. That will be some 17 to 25-degrees below normal for the date.
This due to another strong cold front that is forecast to enter the area around midnight. As of 4 PM MDT this afternoon it was 93ºF in Carlsbad ahead of the cold front while Clayton in far Northeastern New Mexico behind the frontal boundary was a chilly 41ºF. Our roller coaster temperature ride that has been so prevalent this spring continues.
As the cold front arrives tonight strong north to northeast winds are forecast to gust up to around 45 mph across the plains and near 65 mph through Guadalupe Pass. Wind Advisories and a High Wind Warning are in effect for these locals. Blowing dust also looks likely with the strong winds.
We do have a 20% chance for a few thunderstorms tonight and tomorrow but I wouldn't get your hopes up too high over this.
