As of 9 AM MST this morning a mid-upper level low was centered near Wichita Falls, Texas with a trough of low pressure and embedded disturbances located over New Mexico behind the storm. This is the storm that has produced the snow and rain over the state since yesterday.

A broken line of thunderstorms developed late yesterday afternoon across the Tularosa Basin and extended northeastward into northeastern New Mexico. This line of storms moved southeastward along and ahead of a cold front and into southeastern New Mexico early yesterday evening, producing frequent cloud to ground lightning strikes, light to moderate rain showers, and a few reports of small hail. Blowing dust also accompanied the storms. The 8-Mile Draw Raws Automated Weather Station located northeast of Roswell clocked a peak wind gust of 72 mph. The Carlsbad Airport reported a peak gust of 52 mph and the Artesia Airport reported a peak gust of 55 mph.

According to radar snow is falling just north of Roswell northward into northeastern New Mexico and across parts of the Texas Panhandle and northern South Plains.
