Up Go Our Temperatures Today & Thursday.


Preliminary Low Temps This Morning.




Thankfully most of our overnight temperatures have been dropping down into the upper 60's to the low 70's. This makes our afternoon heat a tad more bearable. We can attribute this to a dry airmass parked over the area and our high desert elevations.

 Some of our neighbors are not so lucky. The DFW Airport recorded a high yesterday of 104 and a low this morning of only 81. In Oklahoma City the low this morning was 79 after a high yesterday of 108. Tulsa had a low this morning of 83 after an afternoon high yesterday of 107. Tulsa only dropped down to 88 for a low temp on July 30th and July 31st. These two readings are now the highest minimum temperatures on record for Tulsa, Oklahoma. These locations have higher humidity values at night than we have and this only makes matters worse.

High Pressure Rules - Continued Hot.



A brutal upper-level ridge of high pressure remains parked over the Oklahoma/Texas Panhandles this morning. This sprawling heat ridge is forecast to drift southward today and Friday and will end up centered in southeastern New Mexico and west Texas. Thus  our highest temperatures will occur Thursday and Friday directly underneath this ridge.

This mornings RAP model is forecasting a temperature range of 103-106 over southeastern New Mexico by 4 PM MDT this afternoon. Some of us may come close to tying or breaking a few our our daily record high temps today into the weekend.

Our local National Weather Service forecast temperatures for the next couple of days-

Roswell.

Artesia.
