A Series Of Winter Storms To Impact New Mexico.

January 16, 2021.

Altocumulus Mammatus clouds...a rare site in Southeastern New Mexico especially in the middle of winter. I shot this photo from the western shores of Brantley Lake located between Artesia and Carlsbad, New Mexico in Eddy County. Virga can also be seen in the bottom right-hand side of the photo. That's rain/snow falling from the clouds but evaporating before it reaches the ground due to the dry air at the lower levels below the cloud deck. Within thirty minutes the Mammatus clouds dissipated and turned into virga.

A series of winter storms will move into the Desert Southwest this weekend into next week as a complicated upper air pattern remains entrenched over the West. The first storm impacts western and northern New Mexico this afternoon into Sunday. The second winter storm follows close on its heels late Monday into Tuesday. 


Active weather pattern to send winter storms in New Mexico this week and possibly into the rest of January. Turning colder with time with heavy to very heavy snowfall totals for some mountain locations in the state.

Sadly it appears that for the most part, the Southeastern Plains will receive very little precipitation if any from these two storms.
