Cold Front Brings Hope Of Rain This Weekend.

Latest computer model trends continue to want to drag a surface cold front south into the local area Saturday night and Sunday morning. Meanwhile they also develop a short wave trough of low pressure over the Desert Southwest on Saturday. The dryline is also forecast by the models to back westward to the Guadalupe, Sacramento, and Capitan Mountains Saturday night. It appears that Southeastern New Mexico may also be the focal point for a surface triple point axis. 

Last nights run of the European (ECMWF) was the most energetic with the cooling behind the cold front dropping our highs on Sunday down into the 70's and 80's locally. This model also was a little more aggressive and widespread with the possibility of decent rainfall.

Until then we are still looking at triple digit temperatures today, tomorrow, and maybe Friday.

So if current model trends and forecasts continue on this track it appears that we may actually see a decent chance for thunderstorms this weekend. Naturally any that would manage to form would have the potential to become severe given that we have entered our severe weather season. Typically our spring severe weather season here in Southeastern New Mexico runs from about mid April through June. 

More on this later.
