Cold Front -Strong Winds-Blowing Dust Today.

A change in our local weather will occur this morning as a strong cold front roars southward into the local area. You can say goodbye to those afternoon highs in the mid 80's that we experienced yesterday. Much cooler weather is in store for today with our afternoon highs struggling to get much above 60.

As of 5 AM MDT, the cold front was draped along a Raton-Tucumcari-to just south of Amarillo line. It is moving southward quickly, and should clear southern Eddy and Lea Counties by noontime. At 5 AM the temperature at Clayton was 38 with a NNW wind at 36G46 mph, producing a wind chill value of 24.

A Wind Advisory has been posted for Eddy and Lea Counties for today from 9 AM - 5 PM MDT. Northwest to north winds will increase with the frontal passage to sustained speeds of 30-35 mph, with gusts near 50 mph. A Wind Advisory has also been posted for Otero and LincolnCounties until noon today.

Areas of blowing dust will develop along and behind the cold front as it pushes southward this morning and afternoon. Local visibilities may drop down to less than 2 miles in the blowing dust at times. Some locations may experience sudden drops in the visibility down to less than 1 mile with little to no advanced warning. This will be especially true near freshly plowed or open farmlands, lots, and construction sites.

Seasons First Hard Freeze Tonight.

A Freeze Warning is now in effect for Eddy and Lea Counties for early tomorrow morning. Our overnight low temperatures are forecast to drop down into the mid-upper 20's by tomorrow morning. Please protect your sensitive plants and pets tonight.

Thursday will be much cooler with most of our afternoon high temperatures expected to be in the upper 50's. A quick warm-up is anticipated for Friday with our afternoon highs climbing back up into the 70's.

Another upper-level storm and associated cold front will impact the area this weekend. Saturday could turn out to be a windy day along with Fire Weather Concerns.
