Hot Across The SE Plains - Few T-Storms Over The Mtn's.

Click On The Maps To Enlarge The.

Southeastern New Mexico will continue its streak of hot weather into the weekend. Our highs today, and Friday will range from the low 100's to 105. Saturday's highs will be in the low 100's, and by Sunday current forecasts drop us down into the upper 90's. This trend towards slightly lower temperatures is expected to continue into the 4th of July.

We will see a slight increase in thunderstorm activity over the Guadalupe, Sacramento, and Capitan Mountains. Widely scattered thunderstorms will be possible today into the 4th of July. Rain chances over the mountains are generally in the 10% - 20% range.

Hopefully these storms will produce some wetting rains instead of dry lightning strikes. This will have to be monitored closely. The threat for localized flash flooding over and near the burn scar areas will also have to be closely monitored as well. It will not take much rainfall to produce very quick runoff in these areas. I posted a blog about this on Friday, June 22nd.

Here across the lower elevations of the southeastern plains we are still expecting to stay high and dry into the 4th of July. There are some indications in the computer forecast models that our annual summer monsoon may be trying to work its way northward into southwestern and southern New Mexico with time. But not as far east as southeastern New Mexico. Keep praying for rain!!!
