Big fat fluffy snowflakes fell for awhile yesterday morning. Just a dusting at times throughout the day though in our backyard.

Locally the Queen CoCoRaHS observer reported the highest snowfall total with 5.5" over the past three days. Lisa Doyal the NWS Dark Canyon Climate Co-Op Observer (located 15 miles west-southwest of Carlsbad) reported 4" on the ground early yesterday morning. The public also reported 4" on the ground in Queen, 3" at the Rocky Arroyo crossing on State Highway 137 12 miles west-northwest of Carlsbad.

 The snow depth increased as you went east, south and west of Carlsbad. There was a dusting in the Hobbs and Atoka areas. The public also reported 3" on the ground yesterday morning at the Rio Penasco RV Park in Mayhill. My co-workers reported 2" on the ground at the Hidalgo/Argo Gas Plant located 18 miles west of Orla, Texas. Finally Ski Apache west of Ruidoso picked up 6" of fresh powder out of this storm. 

South Texas Gets More Snow Than SE NM.

Portland, Texas This Morning.

for the 1st time in 13 years in South TX in Corpus Christi this AM. And it looks like the biggest calendar-day snowfall in 69 years. (2.3" 12/24/2004) Only the 8th time they've had measurable snow in 70 years.
So what were the surprises with this first winter storm of the season? Most of SE NM and NM for that matter missed out. The storm track was far enough south that West and South Texas were favored to received the heaviest snows. 

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!

Dangerous Sunspot AR3112

Dangerous Sunspot AR3112
WHEN WILL THE NEXT CME ARRIVE? A magnetic filament in the sun's southrn hemisphere erupted on Oct. 4th, hurling part of itself into space. The emerging CME will pass mostly to the south of our planet, but a fraction could graze Earth's magnetic field on Oct. 8th. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for minor geomagnetic storms and auroras on that date.
