Hot Again Today - Chance For T-Storms Into Wednesday.


(As of 7 AM MDT).

Scattered thunderstorms fired up over the Sacramento Mountains yesterday afternoon and produced a few moderate rainfall totals. But overall the southeastern plains was once again rain free, until this morning. Scattered thunderstorms and rain showers dot the eastern plains in the Clovis and Portales area this morning and are drifting slowly southward.

Our afternoon high temps were again on the toasty side yesterday with the 8-Mile Draw Raws checking in with a high temp of 103. I reached the century mark here at my home in Carlsbad. Similar readings are forecast today, with our highs today expected to be a couple of degrees above yesterday's readings, so most of us ought to see the century mark.

A weak backdoor cold front will work its way slowly southward down the eastern plains today, and into the southeastern plains by tonight or early tomorrow morning. This will help to increase our chances for rain as scattered thunderstorms are forecast to fire up along and behind the frontal boundary. 

Some of the heavier storms will be capable of producing locally heavy rainfall, strong wind gusts, and frequent deadly cloud to ground lightning this afternoon into tomorrow. Most of us have a 10% chance of seeing rain today, and a 30% chance of getting wet tonight into Wednesday night.
