A Cold Front Arrives Tonight - Cooler Saturday.

I recorded a high temperature here at my home in Carlsbad of 86 on Wednesday and 84 yesterday. The Roswell Airport reached 80 on Wednesday and 81 yesterday. The Artesia Airport reached 81 on Wednesday and 79 yesterday. The Carlsbad Airport reached 85 on Wednesday and 84 yesterday. And the Hobbs Airport reached a high of 77 on Wednesday and 79 yesterday.

We can expect to see our afternoon high temperatures in the mid-upper 70's today. A cold front will move southward down the eastern plains this afternoon, and enter southeastern New Mexico early this evening. This front will knock our high temperatures back down into the low 60's on Saturday. Most areas will have low temperatures near freezing Sunday morning.

There is a slight chance for a few isolated rain showers across northern Lea County tonight. It won't be much but at least its something. Sadly, the long-range outlooks for precipitation for the area continue to look rather bleak...so the drought is forecast to continue to strengthen.

Another High Wind-Blowing Dust-Critically Dangerous Fire Weather
Event In Store For The Area Monday And Tuesday!

Special Weather Briefing From The Albuquerque
National Weather Service Office.
High Winds -High Fire Danger Next Week!
Valid At 5 PM MST Mon Mar 7, 2011.
Valid At 5 PM MST Tue Mar 8, 2011.
Valid Mon Mar 7, 2011 And Tue Mar 8, 2011.

A quick warm-up will return to the area on Sunday as yet another potent upper level storm is forecast to sweep across New Mexico Monday and Tuesday. The bad news is that this will be another dry system for southeastern New Mexico, as it tracks over the northern areas of the state.

Another Potentially Dangerous High Wind-Blowing Dust-Critically Dangerous Fire Weather Event appears to be shaping up for Monday and Tuesday across the local area.
Very strong winds aloft will mix down to the surface both days, as a tight surface pressure gradient sets up across the eastern side of the state. Afternoon high temperatures will climb back up into the 80's, and relative humidity values will fall below 15% both afternoons. These factors will once again set the stage for a couple of rough days across the area, with the potential for damaging wind gusts, blowing dust, and another bout of dangerous fire weather conditions!

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
