A small closed upper level low was located near San Diego, California early this morning and is forecast to move rapidly eastward across southern New Mexico today into Halloween as it opens up and weakens. 

A strong backdoor cold front was located between Roswell and Clovis as of 5 AM this morning and is moving rapidly southward and westward. After seeing high temperatures in the mid to upper 70's yesterday today's highs will be some 20 to 30 degrees colder behind the cold front. North to northeast winds are gusting in the 25 to 35 mph range behind the front. A High Wind Warning is in effect for Guadalupe Pass for this evening through Tuesday morning where northeast winds are forecast to gust up to 50 mph.


Today.



Halloween.



Wednesday.



Highs on Halloween will be in the 50's. Today's and Halloweens high temps will be some 15 to 20 degrees below normal for the date. Temperatures at sunset and afterwards will be in the mid 40's to near 50 with southeasterly winds around 10 mph so bundle the ghosts and goblins up. 

Right on cue as has been the case all month long the temperature roller coaster ride continues with highs on Wednesday bouncing right back up into the mid 70's to the low 80's which will be some 5 to 10 degrees above normal for the date. October is famous for these type of temperature extremes.

Rain Upon The Plains & Snow In The Mountains?





Valid Today Into 6 PM MDT Wednesday.

A few light rain showers may break out over the local area tonight into Halloween morning. A few light snow showers will also be possible across the higher elevations of the Guadalupe, Sacramento, and Capatin Mountains generally above 7,000'. Its possible that the Cloudcroft and Sunspot areas could see an inch or two of snow with the highest elevations such as Ski Apache west of Ruidoso possibly seeing more.
