Early Hot Start To Summer.


6-8-2018.

Dry Thunderstorms Are Common In New Mexico.

Looking back to the southwest from just east of Whites City at a high based mostly "dry thunderstorm" that had formed over the Guadalupe Mountains. This time of the year we see a lot of these "dry thunderstorms" in New Mexico. They are common in the spring and early summer.

They often produced only meager amounts of rainfall, dry microbursts, and are accompanied by cloud to ground lightning strikes which start Forest Fires and Range/Grassland fires. Bases of this thunderstorm were around 10,000' to 12,000' above the ground as per the Carlsbad and Guadalupe Pass ASOS Observations. 

Sadly New Mexico has had more than its normal share of Forest Fires thus far this year. Locally the Solider Canyon Fire south of Mescalero continues to burn out of control as of Friday evening. 



Isolated high based "dry thunderstorms" are possible today across much of New Mexico today. Of particular concern is the brown shaded area depicted on the map above. Dry lightning strikes will have the potential to start additional fires in these areas.
