Storm Is Too Far To The North.



Valid @ 6 AM MDT This Morning.


Our anticipated strong winter-like storm is going to be somewhat of a let down. At sunrise this morning the storm was beginning to split into an elongated mid-level trough of low pressure. Part of the storm is centered over northwestern Arizona while the core of the storm was centered over western Wyoming.


A week ago the models were going nuts with this storm...forecasting a big snow storm from the Rockies eastward into the plains. This is not to be now. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the northwestern Highlands and the San Juan Mountains of northern New Mexico through early this evening. 1" - 3" of snow is forecast with higher totals across the higher peaks and summits. 

A Wind Advisory is in effect for the Ruidoso, Cloudcroft, Alamogordo, Las Cruces, and El Paso areas of southern New Mexico. Southwesterly winds sustained at around 25 - 35 mph with gusts up to around 40 - 50 mph are anticipated today.

Valid @ 6 PM MDT Thursday.

Mid and high level moisture which is the remnants of former Hurricane Raymond continue to stream over southern and southeastern New Mexico this morning. Unfortunately the strong mid-upper level storm to our northwest and north is just too far to the north to pull the bulk of this moisture northward into our local area. Therefore we will miss out on the rains. There may be an isolated thunderstorm or two around but overall our chances for seeing rain have gone by the way side. Central and eastern Texas ought to make out with some decent rainfall totals by Halloween at sunset. 


Valid @ 4 PM MDT Today.

Severe thunderstorms will be possible today into tonight from Texas northward into Kansas.
