Our Storm Has Arrived - Moderate Rains Over SE NM.
Temperatures @ 11 AM MST Today.
Valid @ 5 PM MST This Afternoon.
Cloudcroft picked up about 1/2" of snow earlier this morning but currently has stopped (as of 12:45 PM MST anyway) via their Web Cam. Rain has overspread the southeastern plains of New Mexico. At times it has been moderate to heavy in a few spots. As of 1:13 PM MST this afternoon I have measured .21" here at my home in Carlsbad.
Light Freezing Rain has been reported in the Tatum area with some light accumulation on exposed surfaces. The latest temp in Tatum at 1 PM MST was 32F.
We will see a continuation of the rain across the local area through sunset it appears. The HRRR model is currently forecasting the heaviest rains to occur by around sunset with totals by then averaging around .50" to .75" across most of Eddy County. Lesser amounts in Chaves County and around 1.25" in southeastern Lea County. I take this with a grain of salt though because some of us may see more rain and some of us may see less than rain than what this particular model run is forecasting.
My temperature here at our home in Carlsbad has dropped down to 41F, this down from 48F earlier this morning, with a light northerly wind. So it appears that the cold front has arrived. We should hold steady with our temps this afternoon and not see to much of a drop in them.
