Surface Map Forecast.

Valid At 6 PM MDT This Thursday Afternoon.

Right on cue a potent cold front has swept through Southeastern New Mexico and nearby West Texas as of 5 AM this morning. Infrared satellite imagery and surface observations show low clouds (light blue shades on the image above) quickly filling in behind the cold front across the area.

Temperatures locally are as warm as they are going to get today with slowly falling values throughout the day. By late this afternoon and early this evening we will be in the 30's. Wind chill temperatures are expected to drop down into the 20's and 30's today. A raw, cold, windy day is on tap...welcome to an early taste of winter.












Valid Today Through 6 AM MDT Friday.

Light rain and drizzle may impact parts of Southeastern New Mexico and nearby West Texas today. There is a chance that a mix of light rain, snow, and perhaps some sleet could occur over our far northern and eastern areas late this afternoon and evening as well as over the mountains. However as of 5 AM MDT this morning the forecast models are not forecasting any signification accumulations.

Our first widespread freeze will occur Friday morning with many areas experiencing a killing freeze. Our low temperatures tonight into Friday morning are expected to drop down into the 20's with some teens in the higher mountain valleys.
