A cold front moved into the Pecos Valley early this morning and is continuing to push south as of this writing. Stratocumulus clouds at a couple of thousand feet above the ground are forming in the low-level northeasterly upslope flow behind the front.

 I shot the two photos above this morning. If you look at the visible satellite image of the state above, you can see the stratocumuls field thickening up over the Central Mountain range, and extending northward from Ruidoso to the Clines Corners area , and then eastward to the NM/TX State line east of Tucumcari.

Should the stratocumulus field continue to thicken up this morning, overcast skies could help to hold our daytime high temperatures down into the 60's and 70's across SE NM. These clouds should clear out of the area by sunrise tomorrow morning. Calm winds, clearing skies, and good radational cooling should allow our overnight low temps to dip down into the 45-50 degree range by tomorrow morning. A few of the normally colder valley spots could even end up a couple of degrees cooler.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
