One More Cool Day - Back To The 90's Next Week.





(Saturday Sept 8, 2012).



(As Of 7 AM MDT).



(As Of 7 AM MDT).



Overcast skies, and a much cooler airmass in place over southeastern New Mexico, kept our daytime high temperatures down yesterday. Our afternoon highs were in the 60's and 70's. very fall-like temperatures prevailed across the Sacramento mountains with highs in the 40's and 50's, and low 60's. This was the first outbreak of fall-like weather for the season.

A Little Warmer Today.  


Our skies will clear, and we will see our afternoon highs climb up into the 80's today. Back to temps in the 90's for next week, so our break from summer will be coming to an end. 

September marks the beginning of the battle of the airmasses, as the jet stream once again becomes active across the northern states. Summer is trying to hang on as fall marches south. Its the time of the year that we can still see daytime highs in the 90's, occasionally 100 or above, with nighttime lows in the 40,s 50's, and 60's. This temperature roller coaster ride will become more pronounced as we head into October. 

We will see more of these cold fronts entering the area as the month draws on, and the next one is due by around Thursday. Current forecasts indicate that we will see highs on Friday once again dropping down into the 70's across the southeastern plains. 

Valid At 6 AM MDT Friday Sept 14, 2012.
