Hot Again With Widely Scattered T-Storms.


June 23rd, 2019.

My wife and I were on our way back home from a trip to Las Cruces this past Sunday afternoon when I took this photo of  a pyrocumulus cloud and smoke. We were just north of Dunken, in southwestern Chaves County, on US Hwy 82 looking back to the north at the Pine Lodge Fire.

As of late Monday evening this forest fire has already consumed 7,898 acres with 0% containment. The cause of this fire remains unknown and it started around 2 PM MDT on June 19th. 

Chance For T-Storms Today.



An Air Quality Alert remains in effect for today for Lincoln County because of smoke from the Pine Lodge Forest Fire. 

Widely scattered thunderstorms are forecast to pop up over the area this afternoon and evening with the best chances for storms across Eddy and Lea Counties. The Carlsbad and Hobbs areas has a 30% chance of getting wet. A few of these thunderstorms may be marginally severe and produce large hail and damaging thunderstorm wind gusts in excess of 60 mph.




High temperatures today will range from the upper 90's to near 100ºF.



The strongest thunderstorms may dump up to an half of an inch of rain or so.
