Historical Review Of The February 1-5,1956 Blizzard In NM & W TX.

Upper Air Pattern.

(February 3, 1956).

New Mexico Climate Data.
(February 1956.)











Vaughn 13.5"/11"/0°F
Santa Rosa 8.3"/8"/6°F
Clovis 13N 17.0"/M/4°
Milnesand 13.0"/10"/5°

Picacho 17.0"/14"/6°F
Ruidoso 26.3"/14"/-16°F
Fort Stanton 25.0"/18"/-1°F

Roswell 15.8"/11"/3°F (Snowed for 92 hours straight).
Bitter Lakes Wildlife Refuge 15.2"/M/0°F
Hagerman 15.1"/15"/3°F

Artesia M/6"/8°F
Maljamar 11.5"/10"/8°F
Lake Avalon 7.0"/7"/12°F
Carlsbad Airport 15.2"/13"/11°F
Carlsbad Caverns M/12"/8°F
Potash Mine 20.0"/M/6°F

Notice the difference in Artesia's, Lake Avalon's, and the Potash Mines (just east of Carlsbad) snowfall totals. Since considerable drifting was reported its hard to know which snowfall amount is correct. The 20" reported at the Potash Mines makes more sense that the 7" at Lake Avalon and the 6" at Artesia because its closer to the totals that were reported in the Roswell, Tatum, Lovington, and Hobbs areas. In my opinion anyway. 

Tatum 15.3"/10"/5°F
Lovington 15.0"/M/5°F
Hobbs 21.2"/16"/7°F
Pearl (West Of Hobbs) 11.5"/M/10°F
Jal 6.9"/5"/14°F

Elk (East Of Mayhill) M/18"/2°F
Mayhill Ranger Station 22.1"/11"/0°F
Cloudcroft 29.0"/23"/-6°F
Mountain Park 8.5"/M/5°F

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
