As of 3 PM MST today, I have recorded a high temp here at my home in Carlsbad, NM of 75, this is some sixteen degrees above normal. National Weather Service forecasts are calling for high temps on Tue & Wed in the low-mid 80's, which will be some 20-25 degrees above normal.

As the flow aloft over New Mexico becomes more zonal over the next couple of days, the surface pressure gradient will tighten up. This will cause dry downslopping southwesterly-westerly winds to increase over the area, especially on Wednesday. These winds may approach High Wind Warning Criteria speeds across the Guadalupe Mountains, and possibly the E/SE Plains on Wednesday.

The fire danger will increase across the area with Critically Dangerous Fire Weather Conditions developing. Please avoid any type of outdoor activity that involves the use of sparks or flame.

A short wave trough of low pressure will zip by across Northern New Mexico Thursday and Friday. A Pacific Cold Front will sweep across the state on Thursday which will knock our daytime high temps back down to near normal values Thursday and Friday.

The latest runs of the NAM/WRF computer forecast models, are indicating that this next upper level storm may drop further south than is being forecast by the earlier runs. If this pans out, there is the possibility that a few light rain showers could dot the landscape Thursday and Friday, with a few light snow showers across the higher elevations of the Sacramento and Capitan mountains.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
