Up & Down Goes The Thermometer.



(Saturday Morning).






Valid At 6 AM MDT Saturday Morning.

While daily record high temperatures have been tied or broken in our local area the past four days (104º yesterday in Midland) a late-season freeze is forecast for our northern and northeastern neighbors this weekend. An unbelievably strong closed low at about 17,000' above sea level is forecast to be centered over western New York State by Saturday morning. A cold northerly and northwesterly surface flow behind a couple of cold fronts will drag unusually cold air south into the northern and northeastern U.S. giving many areas a late-season freeze. Adding to the farming woes in those areas. 


Today.


Wednesday.


Thursday.





A cold front has moved south through the local area early this morning. Much cooler today behind this front with highs in the mid 70's to near 80 forecast. Strong northeasterly winds sustained at around 25 to 35 mph with gusts to 50-55 mph are forecast locally with A Wind Advisory in effect for Eddy and Lea Counties as well as across parts of West Texas and Southern New Mexico. A High Wind Warning is in effect for the Guadalupe Mountains for northeasterly winds sustained at 35 to 50 mph with gusts near 65 mph.

A quick warm-up will commence beginning Wednesday. Thursday's forecast high for Carlsbad is 103º. Another cold front on Friday knocks our highs back down to near 80º. Mother nature is having issues this spring.
