First Snow Overnight - Boy Was It Cold In NM!


Hey, I know it wasn't much but technically we had our first snow (0.1") overnight here in Carlsbad, New Mexico. We can easily go four or five years without snow here, so
we enjoy every single flake we get here in the Desert Southwest.

Notice how much of the Sacramento Mountains missed out on the heavier snow last night, this is somewhat odd. Where there was snow cover the thermometer plummeted.

Boy did it get cold overnight in the higher snow covered sheltered valleys of northern New Mexico. Eagle Nest reported a morning low temp of -21, the Angel Fire Airport reported -19, the San Antonio Valles Caldera -17, Chama -12, Torreon -10, the Raton Airport -8, and the Las Vegas Airport -7.

Locally, the Carrizozo Airport reported a morning low of 0, the Adams Ranch northwest of Ruidoso 1, the Mayhill Raws 3, a personal weather station near Cloudcroft in Dry Canyon 7, Weed 7, and the Mescal Raws 9. The coldest temp in the Sacramento mountains that was reported was the Fort Stanton Raws with a low of -7.
