Triple Digit Temps Return!

June 16th, 2018.

Looking northeast from my mother's and brother's alfalfa farm in Atoka, south of Artesia this past Saturday at a long line of thunderstorms along the New Mexico and Texas State line. For those of you who managed to get a decent rain out of this storm I hope you enjoyed because that is over for awhile. 

Most of you are not going to like what is coming back...you guessed it, triple digit afternoon high temperatures. In fact the European forecast model (ECMWF) gets kinda of crazy and is forecasting a high temperature this coming Saturday of 111º for Carlsbad! The GFS and National Weather Service (NWS) NDFD forecasts aren't far behind with a forecast high of 109º. So who is splitting hairs right? 

Thursday marks the beginning of the calendar summer and listed below are some of our local daily record high temperatures for June 21st. It does not appear that we will reach these records on Thursday by the daily records for Saturday may be threatened.

Roswell Climate 109º in 1981
Artesia Climate 108º in 1935
Carlsbad Climate 110º in 1942
Carlsbad Airport 109º in 1996
Hobbs Climate 110º in 1960
Tatum Climate 110º in 1981

Bottom line is its going to be hot with near record to record high temperatures forecast!


Wednesday.


Thursday.


Friday.


Saturday.


Sunday.


European (ECMWF) Forecast High Temps.


GFS Forecast High Temps.




We could be in Death Valley, California where the forecast high temperature on Thursday is expected to approach 125º. An Excessive Heat Warning is in effect for the area through this weekend. 

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
