Today's NASA MODIS Aqua Satellite Images.
The Whitewater-Baldy Fire Complex.

A thick plume of smoke blanketed much of southeastern New Mexico overnight. This blanket of smoke along with breezy westerly winds combined to produce some very warm overnight low temperatures. High temperatures yesterday and low temperatures this morning include-

Roswell Airport 102/72
Artesia Airport 99/75
Carlsbad Airport 101/80
My Home in Carlsbad 100/78

Today will be breezy to occasionally windy across SE NM. Thankfully the smoke trajectory from the Whitewater-Baldy Fire Complex in southwestern New Mexico trending further to the north with the winds at the surface and aloft becoming more southwesterly with time. Roswell continues to suffer from the smoke as of noon today.

This monstrous fire has consumed over 70,500 acres so far, it more than tripled in size overnight. The fire has already burned 12 homes and 7 other buildings in the Willow Creek area. Sadly conditions are forecast to worsen across that area of the state tomorrow into Saturday as very strong southwesterly winds will continue to plaque the area.


A large upper-level storm will settle into the Desert Southwest by Saturday. This storm will continue to produce strong southwesterly winds over the state and local area Friday and Saturday. Our afternoon high temperatures are forecast to continue to range from the mid 90's to the low 100's today into Saturday.

We should see the dryline retreat westward into southeastern New Mexico Friday night. It will wobble around of the local area this upcoming holiday weekend. As the upper-level storm to our west approaches we should see some scattered thunderstorm activity fire up along and east of the dryline Saturday into Sunday. Some of these thunderstorms will have the potential of becoming severe.
