Another Gorgeous SE NM Sunrise.

Another Gorgeous SE NM Sunrise This Morning.
Another Reason Why I Love Living Here.

More Wind...More Dangerous Fire Weather Conditions.

This update is going to be fairly short...please see the links and graphicast maps on this web page for additional details concerning the Red Flag Warnings that are out for SE NM today, and the threat for a few supercell thunderstorms across parts of West Texas this afternoon and evening.

Once again the dryline wobbled back westward into southeastern New Mexico overnight, but will quickly mix eastward today, as a fairly strong southwesterly surface regime becomes established. Southwesterly wind gusts will kick up into the 30-40 mph range across the lower elevations of SE NM this afternoon.

A High Wind Warning has been issued for the Guadalupe Mountains for this afternoon and evening. Southwesterly winds are forecast to increase to sustained speeds of 30-40 mph with gusts near 60 mph.

So another critically dangerous fire weather setup is on tap for us. Even stronger southwesterly winds are forecast across the area tomorrow. Our afternoon highs today and tomorrow will be in the mid-upper 80's.

A few scattered supercell thunderstorms may develop across parts of West Texas this afternoon and evening. The main severe weather threat will be large hail and damaging thunderstorm wind gusts associated with these severe thunderstorms.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
