Much Colder This Weekend!
Valid At Noon MDT Saturday Oct 6, 2012.
Valid At Noon MDT Sunday Oct 7, 2012.
A much colder airmass is poised to invade the southeastern plains of New Mexico tonight. But before the colder air arrives we will once again take another ride up on the temperature roller coaster today. Our afternoon highs ahead of the southward advancing cold front this afternoon are forecast to be in the upper 80's to the mid 90's.
Much colder air will overspread the area tonight behind the cold front. Our temperatures this weekend are forecast to run some 20-35 degrees below normal. usty northerly winds will accompany the frontal passage, which will add to the chill in the air tomorrow morning. Overcast skies, along with patches of light rain, drizzle and fog are forecast to develop later tonight and continue into Saturday.
With highs Saturday forecast to range from 48 in Clovis, 52 in Hobbs, 57 in Roswell, 61 in Artesia, and 63 in Carlsbad, it will likely to turn out to be a rather dreary day for most of us. I suspect that as deep and cold as the airmass is we may see our afternoon highs on Saturday and Sunday turn out to be a little lower than currently is being forecast in some locations.
Our low temperatures Saturday night into Sunday morning are currently forecast to be in the upper 30's to the low 40's. Fall has defiantly arrived! A Freeze Watch has been issued by the Albuquerque National Weather Service Office for the northeastern and eastern plains of the state for late tonight into Saturday morning, and again for late Saturday night into Sunday morning.
