Today's Temps Will Be More Like Mid March Than Mid December.

Sunrise In Carlsbad, NM. 12-10-2015.

It was 61°F here at our home in Carlsbad at 5 AM this morning. Carlsbad's average high/low temperatures for December 11th are 58°F/28°F. Our afternoon high temperature today will be in the upper 70's, maybe even reach 80°F. I recorded a high of 82°F on Thursday. A bit on the windy side today and cooler this weekend. 

These high temperatures recorded on Thursday are more typical of the middle of March than they are of the middle of December. These readings are some 15-25 degrees above normal.

Weekend Storm.

Valid @ 11 PM MST Saturday.

Our next mid level trough of low pressure will sweep across the state fairly quickly Saturday. It may briefly close off Saturday night but this won't be a significant factor in our local weather. The fact that it is tracking across northeastern New Mexico means more wind for us than precipitation.

Valid @ 11 AM MST Saturday.

Valid @ 11 AM MST Today.

Valid @ 11 AM MST Sunday.

Valid @ 5 AM MST Monday.

A Pacific cold front will work its way eastward across the state on Saturday. Western and northern New Mexico especially in the mountains have the best chances of seeing accumulating snowfall. The Sacramento mountains may pick up a couple inches of fresh snow out of this storm. A few light rain showers will be possible across southeastern New Mexico on Saturday.
