The Change Over Sleet & Snow Has Begun In SE NM.


Blog Updated @ 3:25 PM MST.

Roads Are Getting Slick & Icy In Carlsbad, NM.
Light drizzle has changed over to light sleet and light snow.


Here we go...we just changed over to snow here in Carlsbad. Take a look at the latest satellite image below. Notice the large area of yellow shaded colors that stretches from south of El Paso, all the way north to southeastern Colorado.

This indicates and area of enhanced lift...which means here comes the sleet and snow. This disturbance is not the main storm...its still west of us, and is centered over southern California. Its forecast to move into the state Sunday afternoon.

My SE NM Radar Snapshot @ 2:30 PM MST.

When you visit my web page to view this radar please be sure and check the "Winterize Box" at the top of the radar page. This changes the radar viewing mode over to the winter mode. Light snow is showing up near Artesia and Carlsbad in the snapshot above, with light rain southeast of Midlalnd, and sleet near Lubbock. 

Notice too that on the two sidebars on each side of the main page there are eight smaller radar images. Click on any of these on my main web page, and the center image changes to the one you select. On the left hand side are the Albuquerque, Cannon AFB, Holloman AFB, and El Paso radar images. On the right hand side are the Amarillo, Lubbock, Midland, and Artesia radar images. Artesia does not have a doppler radar, this is an image from the Midland NWS Dual Polarization Doppler Radar...I named it Artesia because it is centered on Artesia, and is the central view for southeastern New Mexico.
