Wild Day Yesterday.

Thankfully our inbound winter storm slowed down yesterday in its eastward trek across Arizona. Therefore our anticipated high winds and blowing dust failed to materizle here in southeastern New Mexico. The dust did kick up around sunset and afterwards but was not nearly as bad a what was forecast. Meanwhile a line of thunderstorms moved through Lea County, producing hail that covered the ground west of Tatum.

 At 8:19 PM MST Last Night The El Paso Airport Was Reporting Light Snow, And Blowing Dust With A Visibility Of 6 Miles. Temp Was 37F With A WNW Wind At 40 MPH Gusting To 60 MPH, Producing A Wind Chill Value Of 23F. A Storm Spotter Reported A Gust To 72 MPH In North El Paso Around This Time.

Something You Will Not See Very Often Around Here - Two Lines Of Thunderstorms.

 Regional Satellite Snapshot At 8:30 PM MST Last Night.
A Mix Of Light Rain, Light Snow, And Blowing Dust Was Moving Eastward Through Southern New Mexico While A Line Of Thunderstorms Producing Small Hail Was Moving Through Lea County, New Mexico. 

Blustery and dusty will best describe today's weather across southeastern New Mexico. Westerly to northwesterly winds are forecast to gust up to 75 mph in the Guadalupe's and around 50 mph across the southeastern plains. These wind gusts will make our forecast high temps of around 60F feel colder than what it really is too. Add to the misery some blowing dust.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
