Very Cold This Morning.

Elmo is not a happy camper this morning.
He says its way too cold in New Mexico.

Queen, NM Monday Morning.


Our first bout with winter will be today as our skies begin to clear. It will be cold though with afternoon high temperatures forecast to range from the upper 20's to near 32 across the southeastern plains of New Mexico. Warmer temps are forecast for Wednesday with highs in the 50's likely.

A dry cold front will get shoved southward into the area late Thursday night by a fast moving clipper type upper-level storm, that will be diving southward out of Canada, and into the Central Plains. Our highs Friday and Saturday will be in the 40's. Long-range models indicate that our next potential winter storm may affect the state by around the first to middle of next week as another large upper-level trough of low pressure dives into the Desert Southwest.

Ski Apache, as is usually is the case, was the big winner for local snowfall totals with 11". This brings their season snowfall total to 31". Some of the other heavier snowfall totals reported include 7.2" ESE of Clovis, 1 mile S of Capitan 6", 1 mile NW of Roswell 4.6", West side of Roswell 4.5", and 4" in Artesia, I measured a storm total of 2.7" of snowfall here at my home in Carlsbad, with 1.5" on the ground at 6 AM this morning. Most of my snowfall melted as it fell, and at times was mixed with rain, and sleet. Additional snowfall totals will be added as they become available today.
