Overnight Snowfall In The Sac's - High Winds & Blowing Dust This Afternoon.

Snow Overnight In The Sacramento Mtn's.

Not that its all that unusual but a couple of inches of fresh powder fell overnight across the higher elevations of the Sacramento Mountains. Some fairly decent rains also fell in the Sac's thanks to the approaching upper level low to our southwest. Yea its April in New Mexico.

Sand Blasting Time - Oh Joy (Not).

Its always a nice treat to pick up rain or snow in New Mexico in the spring but sadly this won't be the case for most of eastern and southeastern New Mexico and parts of West Texas today. As the upper level low moves overhead today strong dry down slopping southwesterly winds will kick up. These winds will be sustained at around 25-35 mph with gusts in the 50 mph range across the lower elevations and across the Guadalupe's some guts will approach or exceed 65 mph.

 Critically Dangerous Fire Weather Conditions will prevail today so please avoid any outdoor activity that will involve the use of fire or sparks. Any fire will have the ability to rapidly spread and grow in the high winds. 

Naturally there will be areas of blowing dust this afternoon so be careful on the local roadways...especially near open fields, construction sites, open or freshly plowed farmlands and fields. Sudden drops in the visibility in these areas could easily be near zero at times. High temperatures today in SE NM will be in the mid-upper 70's. 

Severe thunderstorms are expected today from Kansas south into Texas. Large hail, damaging thunderstorm wind gusts, and a few tornadoes will be possible in the highlighted areas above. Especially across parts of north Texas eastward into northern Louisiana and southeastern Arkansas.
