Watching A Developing Tropical Storm Well South Of The Baja Peninsula.
(Thursday Sept 20, 2012).
Very little change is anticipated in our local weather today going into the weekend and into the first of next week. We will continue to see our afternoon highs generally ranging from 90 - 95 across the southeastern plains, and the 70's & 80's across the Guadalupe, Sacramento, and Capitan Mountains.
Heavy Rains By The End Of Next Week?

A Tropical Disturbance (Invest 93E) has developed well south of the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula. The various computer models forecast this disturbance to move northward this weekend into the first of next week and gradually strengthen it.
The US GFS forecast model is rather bullish on bringing the remnants of this Tropical Storm into the Desert Southwest, and New Mexico by the end of next week, as a trough of low pressure develops over the Desert Southwest and pulls this system northward.
Should this pan out, there is the potential for widespread heavy rainfall in our local area. Its just too early to know for sure just yet, but in about a week our weather may become rather interesting.
