Warm & Windy Today - Cooler Windy Tuesday.

Valid At 11 AM MST Tuesday.

Windy weather returns to southeastern New Mexico today into tomorrow as our next upper-level storm moves across the state. Southwesterly winds are forecast to increase to sustained speeds of 20 - 30 mph today with gusts around 40 mph. These winds will become westerly and increase to sustained speeds of 30 - 35 mph with gusts near 55 mph on Tuesday. 

Its already been pretty windy in the Guadalupe mountains. Overnight gusts so far include 60 mph measured at the Bowl Raws which is located just north of Guadalupe Peak, and 56 mph at Guadalupe Pass. The Sierra Blanca Regional Airport located near Ruidoso has clocked a gust to 52 mph as of 5 AM MST this morning.

Areas of blowing dust may become a problem in some of our more dust prone locations, especially tomorrow during the higher gusts. Today will be warm with our afternoon highs ranging from the upper 60's to the mid 70's. A cold front will knock our highs back down into the 50's on Tuesday.

We've seen a wide range of temps so far this month. My highest temp measured here at my home in Carlsbad this month has been 80F. My lowest has been 17F.






After a brief cool down Tuesday and Wednesday our temps are forecast to climb right back to above normal Thursday and Friday. For nearly three weeks the long-range models were forecasting a surge of arctic air to invade the local area. That didn't happen. 

Last nights GFS model continues to forecast above normal temps for the area from later this week into the next week to ten days. I'm hoping we are not done with winter and will not have an early spring this year. New Mexico's mountains are hurting as far as a decent snow pack is concerned. 

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
