I took this yesterday in Carlsbad just before sunset.
(Sunday Sept 16, 2012).
Dense fog blanketed parts of southeastern New Mexico as the sun rose this morning. Visibilities in some locations were down to 1/4 of a mile or less. The fog had burned off by 10:30 AM.
Early morning low temperatures this morning were some of the coolest readings of this season so far. After needing a jacket in some places this morning, it will be shirt sleeve weather this afternoon and tomorrow. Our forecast high temperatures are expected to be in the upper 80's today, and the low-mid 90's on Monday under sunny skies.
Valid At Noontime Tuesday September 18, 2012.
Is it summer, or is it early fall? Its that time of the year when we can see some pretty wild temperature swings. This will happen again when another cold front enters the local area by around sunset on Monday.
After seeing our high temps reach 90-95 Monday afternoon, cooler air will overspread the area Monday night behind the cold front. Our high temps on Tuesday are forecast to be in the upper 70's to near 80.
Summer isn't ready to give up just yet as our afternoon highs will rebound right back up into the 90's on Wednesday and into the weekend.
