135ºF Temperature Spread In Southeast New Mexico During February.


Sierra Blanca Peak.


Looking Northeast From Alamogordo, NM Saturday, February 24, 2018.

As of February 25th, 2018 Ski Apache has recorded a seasonal snowfall total of 36 inches. They had a base depth of 28 inches this morning. Far below their normal seasonal total 180 inches.

February Temperature Extremes In SE NM.




Topping out with an official high temperature of 100ºF on the 24th after a morning low of 38ºF. That's a temperature rise of 62ºF from the morning low to the afternoon high.

Extreme Cold On February 8th, 1933.


Artesia, New Mexico Records -35ºF.


Hagerman, New Mexico Records -34ºF.


Tatum, New Mexico Records -32ºF.


Pearl, New Mexico Records -30ºF.


As far as I can find in the records books the only other time its has gotten down to -30ºF or colder locally was on the morning of February 3rd, 2011. When the Fort Stanton Raws recorded a low of -31ºF and the Mescalero Raws recorded a low of -30ºF. Unofficially The Inn of The Mountain of Gods Resort dropped down to -30ºF too. 

Carlsbad's high of 100ºF on February 24, 1904 and Artesia's low of -35ºF on February 8, 1933 produces a temperature spread of 135ºF for the month of February! That's remarkable to say the least.
