First Significant Cold Snap Late This Week!

A Few T-Storms Late This Afternoon & Evening.







A short wave trough of low pressure moving eastward from the Baja Region will move across the area today into tonight. Lift and instability associated with this upper-level trough will help to produce scattered thunderstorms over parts of southeastern New Mexico and west Texas later this afternoon and evening. Some of these thunderstorms may become severe (elevated in nature) and produce mainly large hail. It appears that the greatest risk for a few severe thunderstorms will occur over west Texas late this afternoon and into early this evening.

Hot Week Ahead.

Much of this upcoming week will see high temperatures in the mid 80's to near 90, at least until Thursday. A strong mid and upper-level trough of low pressure is forecast by the models to swing eastward across the Rockies and out onto the plains by mid-week.

 As this potent storm pulls eastward, it will send a strong cold front southward into our neck of the woods by around Thursday evening. A much colder airmass will plummet southward behind this cold front by Friday, sending out local temperatures diving southward by some 30 to 35-degree below normal by the weekend.

 By noontime on Saturday much of eastern and southeastern New Mexico and nearby west Texas may be only looking at temps in the 30's and 40's. It already appears that our first freeze of the season is looming on the horizon this weekend so get ready for folks.
