Will Old Man Winter Take A Another Swing At Us Wednesday?

Winter Takes Another Shot - First Freeze Next Week?


Valid At Noon MDT Next Wednesday.

As I publish this my thermometer tells me its a balmy 76º here in Carlsbad at 2:45 PM this beautiful Saturday afternoon. How about close to 80º for a high temp on Sunday, and perhaps a few low 80's on Monday. Enjoy because if this mornings run of the European forecast model is correct old man winter is going to take a another swing at us Wednesday.

There are significant differences between the U.S. GFS forecast model and the European (ECMWF) in this mornings runs. The Euro digs a closed low south into New Mexico centered near the Vaughn area by noontime Wednesday. The GFS has a fast moving long wave trough along the NM?TX state line at the same time. 

Whichever model forecast turns out to be correct will have huge implications upon how our weather turns out next week. The Euro would bring winter back with accumulating snowfall as far south as the Clovis area and the Sacramento Mountains. It brings a strong cold front into the SE Plains Wednesday morning born upon northerly winds gusting to 35-45 mph. Along with wind chills in the 20's and 30's and high temperatures in the 40's.

The GFS indicates none of this at this time. The Euro also forecasts colder temps with the possibility of some of the local area seeing our first freeze of the season Thursday morning. I tend to lean towards the European model forecast given our history this month of strong cold fronts plunging southward into the state. At least this has been the pattern so far. The jury is still out on this one and more on this in a day or two.

Impressive Widespread Heavy Rainfall Overnight.


3:01 PM MDT 10-24-2018.
Talk about not being able to see across the street because of the fog...Whites City this afternoon.

2:47 PM MDT 10-24-2018.
Looking east just north of the NM/TX State line this afternoon.

2:48 PM MDT - 10-24-2018.
Looking northeast just north of the NM/TX State line this afternoon. Visibility at the state line was 1/8th of a mile and that's about as good as it got as I traveled north up US Hwy 62/180 to Whites City...16 miles to the northeast. In places (Whites City included) the visibility dropped down to 25 to 100 yards. 

Heavy Rains Fall Yesterday And Overnight.
