Near Elk In The Southern Sacramento Mtn's.
Back to the 80's today and again tomorrow. Warm downsloping southwesterly winds helped keep our temps overnight also. A peak wind gust of 70 mph was clocked at the Bowl Raws and 63 mph at Pine Springs. November can be a roller-coaster ride temperature-wise. Consider that the record high temp for today in Carlsbad is 91º set in 1927. The record for Tuesday is also 91º set in 1916. While Roswell on the cold side of the thermometer dipped down to 20º on this date in 1899. And on November 6th Artesia recorded a low of 16º.
Up and down goes the thermometer over the next week as one surge of cooler/colder arrives behind the initial cold front due Wednesday morning. After seeing our afternoon high temperatures run some 10º to 15º above normal today and Tuesday our highs will cool to some 15º to 20º below normal on Wednesday and again on Friday.
Valid At 5 AM MDT Wednesday.
