Cold Front To Produce T-Storms Monday - Some May Be Severe.
7-14-2018 Storm Clouds Gather West Of Elk. Cold Front Arrives Monday Afternoon. Cold Front Position At Noon MDT Sunday. RTMA Temperatures. At 4 PM MDT Sunday, July 29, 2018. A rather robust (for this time of the year) cold front is scheduled to work its way southward down the eastern plains of New Mexico Monday afternoon. It will arrive in Southeastern New Mexico late Monday afternoon or early Monday evening. For a day anyway (Tuesday) we will get a temporary reprieve from the heat. Forecast high temps locally on Tuesday are slanted to be in the 80's verses the 102º I currently have at our home in Carlsbad as I write this. Note the temperatures across the high plains east of the Rockies at 4 pm this afternoon...the 70's and 80's. Our chances for thunderstorm will increase Monday afternoon and continue into Monday night and early Tuesday morning. Some of these initially may be severe and produce large hail, damaging thunderstorm wind
