Wet July In New Mexico.











Tuesday's high temperatures ended up being some 15-20 degrees cooler than Monday's highs due to a cooler airmass in place over the area behind the cold. Monday the Carlsbad Airport reported a high temp of 102°F, Tuesday's afternoon high was 86°F. The coolest reading was noted at the Sierra Blanca Snotel (10,280') located next to Ski Apace with 60°F.

Not only did it cool down across much of New Mexico yesterday,another active day of thunderstorms was noted over much of the state. Noted are some of the heavier 24 hour rainfall totals.

The San Pedro CWOP Home Weather Station located east of the Sandia mountains measured 1.89". In the northern Sacramento mountains the Ruidoso CoCoRaHS Station 1.7 WNW measured 1.51".  In the Gila mountains the Mimbers CoCoRaHs Station 7.2 NNW measured 1.34". The Mayhill Raws in the Sacramento mountains wasn't far behind with 1.32". The Queen CoCoRaHS Station in the Guadalupe mountains west of Carlsbad measured 1.00". 




While El Nino continues to strengthen the Pacific Ocean continues to heat up. These two factors are playing a significant role in contributing to New Mexico's wet spring & summer. Long range forecasts continue to call for a cooler than normal July and above average rainfall for the state. The trend into the late summer and fall continues this idea as well.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
