Once Again Spotty Heavy Rains Fall In SE NM.


Sunday, Sept 2nd, 2018.
Crepuscular Rays West Of Lakewood.

(As Of  6 AM MDT This Morning).



NWS Midland Radar Estimated Rainfall Totals.


Spotty Heavy Rains Continue To Fall.

Strong thunderstorms once again developed over the area yesterday afternoon. The Sierra Blanca Regional Airport northeast of Ruidoso reported 1.00" of rainfall in the past 24-hours as of 6 AM MDT this morning. Runyan Ranches 50 miles west of Artesia on US Hwy 82 reported 1.09" overnight bringing their total since Saturday up to 3.25". 1.90" fell a couple of miles west of their home overnight. The Queen Raws east of Queen picked up another .82" in the past 24-hours bringing their total up to 2.57" in the past five days.

Once again I've included the local radar estimated 24-hour rainfall totals via the two graphic maps above. Notice that the heaviest rains again have missed the network of reporting rain gauges that are available online. Keep in mind that these total that I have added to the map above are estimates and may be too high in some cases, or too low in others, but overall should be fairly close to what has fallen. Now if we can just get this kind of rainfall in our populated areas.

Listed Below Are Some Of The Heavier Estimated Totals Over The Past 24-Hours.

Northwest Of Lovington 4.25"
Southwest Of WIPP 2.00" - 3.00"
On The NM/TX State Line SW Of Carlsbad 2.75"
North & South Of Hobbs 2.00" - 2.50"
North Of Ruidoso & Northeast Of Cloudcroft 1.75" - 2.00"

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
