Blast Furnace Weather Wednesday & Thursday.








Hot - Dry -Windy Weather Ahead.


A few scattered thunderstorms are forecast to pop up across parts of the local area this afternoon and evening. Most of us will not see rain though. There remains a slight chance that a few of these may become severe and produce large hail and damaging thunderstorm wind gusts. Overall this severe weather threat will be fairly limited and highly localized this afternoon and evening. Spotter activation is not currently anticipated. 

Today will herald a rise in temperatures with our afternoon highs expected to climb up into the mid-upper 90's. I wouldn't be surprised to see a few reporting stations reach the century mark.


A trough of low pressure is forecast to swing across southern Colorado and northern New Mexico tomorrow. As strong mid-level winds mix down to the surface tomorrow a very windy day is expected across much of the state and local area. Southwesterly winds are forecast to gust up to around 35 - 45 mph Wednesday afternoon.

Blast furnace weather returns to southeastern New Mexico Wednesday and Thursday as the strong southwesterly winds combine with the heat to produce Critically Dangerous Fire Weather Conditions. Our afternoon high temperatures are forecast to range from 101 in the Hobbs area tomorrow, to 103 in Roswell and Artesia, to 105 in Carlsbad.

Thursday will be also be windy and perhaps a few degrees cooler with highs ranging from the upper 90's to near 100. Friday's highs are forecast to range from the mid 90's to near 100. Highs this weekend will be in the low - mid 90's.

There still remains the potential for the dryline to become active this upcoming holiday weekend as an upper-level storm drops into the Great Basin this weekend. Scattered thunderstorms could possibly become severe across parts of west Texas and southeastern New Mexico this weekend into the first part of next week.
