 An upper-level trough of low pressure will swing across New Mexico today and tonight. As it does so a cold front will sweep across the state behind it, while the dry line fires up across the eastern and southeastern plains this afternoon and evening.

Scattered thunderstorms are forecast to break out this afternoon across the local area and move eastward into west Texas tonight. Some of these thunderstorms will have to potential to become strong, perhaps even severe, and produce strong gusty winds, hail, and locally heavy rainfall. Some local rainfall totals may exceed an inch.

 Severe thunderstorms are forecast across parts of west Texas this afternoon and evening. There will also be a slight risk of tornadoes.

Colder air will invade the state behind the cold front tonight into the weekend. A Freeze Watch has been issued for parts of northern New Mexico for late tonight through Saturday morning.

By sunrise Sunday morning much of southeastern New Mexico should see our low temperatures dipping down into the 40's. Our highs on Saturday are expected to be in the 70's.

Severe T-Storms Northern NM Today - Snow Above 10,000' Tonight.




NWS Mesonet Low Temps This Morning.

Yesterday was a beautiful day across southeastern New Mexico and nearby areas. My wife and I took a trip up to Cloudcroft and Alamogordo, with Cloudcroft only having an afternoon high temp of 62 fall definitely was in the air. We noticed that the aspens are starting to turn so in a couple of weeks the mountains will be ablaze with color. The low temperature at the Carlsbad Airport ASOS this morning was 57F. It hasn't been this cool since May 14th when a low of 55F was reported.  



Valid @ 9 AM MDT Monday Morning.


An upper-level trough of low pressure is forecast to swing across northern New Mexico today. As it does so Severe Thunderstorms are forecast to break out across northern and north-central New Mexico this afternoon. Tonight as a colder airmass moves in behind this departing upper-level trough snow is forecast across the higher peaks of northern New Mexico above 10,000' MSL. 

Southeastern New Mexico is expected to remain high and dry today with our afternoon highs climbing up into the mid 80's. Welcome to the first day of the calendar beginning of fall.

Goodbye Monsoon...Hello Fall.



Dry air has replaced our tropical airmass that helped to produce 
the states much welcomed rainfall over the week and a half. This
is indicated by the orange and red shading on the map above.

A trough of low pressure currently located over the Pacific Northwest
will swing across northern New Mexico on Sunday.


Fall officially begins Sunday afternoon, September 22nd and with its arrival will be e a significant change in the weather pattern. Small hail and strong wind gusts are likely with thunderstorms on Sunday and Sunday night, mainly north of Interstate 40. Lowering snow levels Sunday night will allow for some snow accumulation on the higher peaks of the northern mountains. Much drier air, breezy conditions and temperatures a little below seasonal averages will characterize Monday's weather.

Valid At 6 PM MDT Thursday, Sept 26, 2013.

Our rains have come to an end as the Monsoon comes to an end across New Mexico. The jet stream is becoming increasingly more active as it digs a little further to the south with time. One of these dips in the jet stream (upper-level trough of low pressure) may produce a dusting of light snow across New Mexico's northern mountains (over the highest peaks) by Monday morning. 

A second upper-level trough of low pressure is forecast to swing eastward across northern New Mexico by the end of next week. We will likely see our dry downsloping southwesterly winds return to the area along with high temps in the 90's ahead of it. By next weekend we will see slightly cooler temps especially in the mornings as drier air predominates.
