T-Storms Return - Continued Hot.

A weak upper level short wave in the mid levels of the atmosphere, will approach SE NM from the west today and tomorrow. This will enhance our chances for T-Storms, especially tomorrow. A few of these storms will be capable of dumping heavy rain.

The long-range computer forecast models agree, that the upper level ridge of high pressure will continue to hold tight over the area, through the next week to ten days. So more hot weather to come. In fact, by next Wednesday, we could be looking at high temps of around 103-105 across the SE NM Plains.


The Carlsbad Climate Coop Station measured 5.12" of rain on this date. This is the greatest 24 hour rainfall total on record, as well as the greatest 24 hour total for the month of August.


On this day in 1996, two Carlsbad city employees reported a brief touchdown by a 40 yard wide tornado 8-10 miles northeast of the Municipal Golf Course. In 2005, thunderstorm winds broke guide wires and blew over an oil rig three miles west of Eunice. A total of $150,000 in damage occurred.


The Roswell Airport measured 2.45" of rain on this date.
