Today's Temps More Like March 2nd Than Feb 2nd.

Today's Outlook.

Blog updated at 2:10 PM MST.

(Northeastern Permian Basin)

Quote- "A Red Flag Warning is in effect for the Guadalupe Mountains and Van Horn and Highway 54 corridor. Relative humidity values less than 15 percent and winds greater than 20 mph are expected to last through the early evening hours.

Chances for thunderstorms will increase this evening through the overnight hours...mainly along and east of a line from Tatum...New Mexico...through Marathon...Texas. Any thunderstorms that do develop will be accompanied by frequent lightning.

Some of these thunderstorms could become severe...particularly across the Western Low Rolling Plains and northeastern Permian Basin. Large hail...damaging winds...and brief heavy rain will be possible in these areas."

Today is going to feel more like March 2nd than Feb 2nd temperature-wise across southeastern New Mexico and surrounding areas. Under mostly sunny skies our afternoon high temps are forecast to climb up into the low-mid 70's. I would image that a few spots may even make it up into the upper 70's.

A cold front will push eastward through the area later tonight as a Winter Storm winds up over northern New Mexico and southern Colorado. Winter Weather Advisories have been issued for parts of northern New Mexico. A Red Flag Warning is in effect for the Guadalupe Mountains today. Southwesterly winds at around 15-25 mph with gusts up around 30 mph will occur today, with higher gusts in the Guadalupe Mountains.

A cooler airmass will overspread the area tonight into the weekend. Our afternoon highs will range from the upper 50's to the low 60's tomorrow. A re-enforcing surge of cooler air will arrive Friday which will keep our highs on Saturday in the low-mid 50's. Superbowl Sunday will be the coolest day with highs in the upper 40's to the low 50's.
