Spring-Like Temps Then Back To Winter?

Today - Wednesday .

Blog updated at 2:50 PM.

Spring-like temperatures and sunny skies will rule our weather into Wednesday. Most of us will see the upper 70's today, the low-mid 80's tomorrow and Wednesday.

I have noticed that a lot of the fruit trees are in the process of blooming out already this year, oops. I have been telling everyone that I did not think that we were done with winter yet, and we are fixing to find this out by the end of this week.

Wed Night - Friday.

Southern New Mexico.
Valid Wednesday.
Areas Of Blowing Dust Reducing
The Visibility Down To Less Than One Mile.
SW Winds 40-50G60+ MPH.

A potent late winter storm located in the Gulf of Alaska early this morning will dive rapidly southeastward today into Wednesday. Most of the models forecast this winter storm to be located over northern Arizona or the Four-Corners Region by Wednesday evening. They then forecast it to become either a strong closed mid-upper level low, or perhaps even a strong cut-off mid-upper level low, that will drift slowly eastward or southeastward over New Mexico into the beginning of the weekend.

As is usually the case, the exact track and speed of this storm will have a direct impact upon our local weather. At this time, it appears that accumulating snows will be possible across the northern, western, and central mountains, as well as the northeastern and eastern plains of the state. Precipitation should break out across the western and norther areas of the state beginning Wednesday and will continue into Friday night.

A cold front will work its way into the area Wednesday night, with a re-enforcing surge of colder air on Thursday. Its possible that many of us may not get out of the 40's Thursday, and maybe even on Friday depending upon the track of this storm. Our low temperatures are forecast to be close to freezing Thursday night into Friday morning.

We have a slight chance of seeing a mixture of light rain and snow showers here in the southeastern plains Thursday night into Friday morning. Should the potent mid-upper level storm sink further to the south, then our chances of seeing snow here in SE NM will increase.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
