Cold Front Has Pushed South Of Portales At Noontime.
As of 11:30 AM MDT this morning the approaching cold front from the north had moved south of a Portales to Lubbock line. It may slow its southward plunge somewhat since we are rolling into the afternoon and peak heating time. it is still forecast to arrive in the southeastern plains by around sunset this evening. Surface winds will shift to the north and northeast and will gust up into the 20-35 mph range as the front passes through. Visible satellite imagery shows an area of low clouds developing along and behind the cold front over the eastern plains of New Mexico and the Texas Panhandle.
