Yesterday afternoon a Severe Thunderstorm rolled across the southern end of Carlsbad. At 5:52 PM MDT a thunderstorm wind gust of 58 knots or 67 mph was observed at the Carlsbad Airport ASOS. This storm also produced 1.08" of rainfall at the airport. Meanwhile here at our home on the northwest side of town I only measured .05".
A strong cold front moved south through the area overnight. Today will be much cooler, in fact our daytime high temperatures will be some 15 to 20 degrees cooler than Friday's highs with readings in the mostly in the 70's.
