For those of us who had not already experienced their first freeze, it occurred this morning. Today and Thursday will be cold across southeastern New Mexico. High temperatures this afternoon will for the most part be in the 30's, a few locations may climb up to around 40F. 

Tonight will likely be the coldest night of the season so far with our low temperatures dropping down into the teens and 20's. Whatever the freeze didn't kill this morning will get taken care of tonight.

Thursday will also be the coldest day of the season. Our highs will again be in the 30's...perhaps a couple of degrees colder than today's highs. We will begin a slow warm-up on Friday and Saturday as the stout arctic ridge of high pressure drifts east and downslopping westerly winds kick in. Highs on Friday will be in the 50's with highs on Saturday in the 60's.

Snow & More Cold Sunday - Monday.

Valid @ 5 AM MST Mon, Nov 17, 2014.

Forecast Total Snowfall.
Valid @ 5 AM MST Mon, Nov 17, 2014.

A couple of days ago I mentioned that snow was in our forecast for late this upcoming weekend. This still appears possible. We get a break from the deep freeze Friday and Saturday but quickly return to it by Sunday. Another arctic cold front will sweep south into the area bringing with it another round of cold temperatures and at least a chance for light snow. More on this in the coming days.
