March Arrives Roaring Like A Lion In NM.












By 4 PM MST this afternoon the RAP model is forecasting a temperature spread of 132-degrees across North America. Temps will range from 96F in northeastern Mexico near the Texas border to -36F in southern Canada. 

Meanwhile here in the Land of Enchantment March has arrived like a roaring Lion. High Wind Warnings are in effect for the Guadalupe Mountains for southwesterly to westerly winds sustained at around 35-45 mph with gusts near 60 mph. Wind Advisories are out for most of southern New Mexico for southwesterly winds sustained at around 25-35 mph with gusts near 45 mph. 

Red Flag Warnings are flying across southeastern New Mexico. Please no outside burning today!

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the southern Sacramento Mountains for tonight. Snow levels are expected to drop from around 9,000' this evening down to around 7,500'. 3" - 5" of new snow will be possible.

Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for parts of western and northern New Mexico. New snowfall totals of up to 20" are forecast for some of the higher elevations of northern New Mexico.

Southeastern New Mexico will be warm and windy today. Carlsbad is expecting to see a high temp of 85 with similar readings elsewhere. Southwesterly winds will gust up to around 40 mph this afternoon. This will kick up localized areas of blowing dust at times. 

A cold front will arrive tomorrow which will knock our high temps back down on Monday and Tuesday into the 50's and 60's. 



It never rains in California but when it does it pours...so goes the song.

Welcome to March and the beginning of the meteorological spring.
