Early This Morning The Dryline Was Backing Westward Into The Pecos Valley As Of 5:30 AM. Note The Dashed Line I Drew To Represent This Boundary. Dew Point Temperatures To The East Of It Were In The 50's While Single Digits, Teens, And The Twenties Were Noted Over The Sacramento Mountains And Tularosa Basin To Our West.

The Dryline At 5:30 PM MDT This Afternoon.

After Mixing Out And Eastward Into Lea County Today The Dryline Had Begun Its Retreat Westward As Of 5:30 PM This Afternoon Reaching Carlsbad. Note The Single Digits, Teens, And Twenties Over The Sacramento Mountains, Tularosa Basin, And The Rest Of The Pecos Valley. The 50+ Dew Points Represents The Richer More Moist Airmass From The Gulf Of Mexico. The Dew Points In The Single Digits And Teens Indicate The Very Dry Desert Airmass To The West Of The Dryline.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
