new Daily Record High Temps - Friday, March 15, 2013.

Its not all that uncommon to see some pretty wild temperature spreads this time of the year. This is a result of  our dry climate with very low humidity values, high altitudes (3,158' MSL at my home), and usually clear skies. I started the day out with a low of 39 and ended up with a high of 92 yesterday

Today's forecast high temps are expected to be near or a couple of degrees above yesterday's readings, so we may once again see some additional daily record high temp records fall by the way side. 

 New daily record high temps were set across the state yesterday. See this by clicking on the "Read more" link.

Warm For Now - But That Will Change.

Warm weather will rule our weather next week. Carlsbad is looking at highs all week long in the 80's. Long-range models are hinting at a colder and wetter pattern toward the end of next week.

A pattern change will be coming by the middle to the end of next week. Although the GFS and ECMWF are not in total agreement concerning the deep upper-level trough forecast to dive into the Western U.S., they both are hinting that it will be a cold, and possibly wet one for New Mexico.

March is typically one of our driest months of the year, but not always. Don't be too surprised if we don't end up with at least some rain, maybe even some snow for parts of the area, and colder temps.
