Hot Dry Weather Drones On Over The Next Week.



There is a lot of truth in this. Many times the only thing that can break a drought locally is when remnant moisture from a dying Hurricane moves into the region. This is more common in the late summer and fall when Pacific Hurricanes break up over the Baja Region. Or when a Hurricane moves Into South Texas, or nearby Mexico, and sends its remnant moisture northwestward into New Mexico. Then it rains and sometimes way too much way to quick. So its not at all uncommon to go from excessive heat and drought to heavy rains and flash flooding in New Mexico when this happens.

Next Week To Ten Days Offer Little Hope For Relief.

Short term and long range model forecasts don't offer much hope for any significant relief from the heat and drought gripping the local area over the next week to ten days. The dryline will continue to light up with thunderstorms across portions of West Texas from time to time. Some at times which may become severe. But current indicators keep the dryline for the most part east of the New Mecico and Texas state line. 

Although this is the time of the year when it wobbles westward into southeastern New Mexico during the night but then mixes eastward into West Texas during the afternoon heating. If it stays far enough west as upper level disturbances pass overhead...we sometimes get thunderstorms. This scenario cannot be completely ruled out from happening in the Clovis-Hobbs-Jal areas over the next week. Don't be surprised if a few thunderstorms do pop up near these areas from time to time. 

 Bottom line continues to be more of the same...hot and dry. Our afternoon high temperatures are forecast to remain 5 to 15-degrees above normal over the next week or so. Our afternoon high temperatures are currently forecast to range from the mid 90's to near 100. 



The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
