Brutal Cold Plunges Into The Gulf Of Mexico.

Take a close look at the Geo Color Satellite image at the top of the page. Notice that status clouds had covered nearly the entire Gulf of Mexico as the brutal polar airmass plunged deep into the Gulf. Temperatures at 4 AM MST had fallen below freezing with apparent temperatures down into the upper teens! I would have loved to have been aboard a commercial airliner flying over this cloud deck at 35,000' and looking down on it. That would have been a beautiful sight to behold for sure. 

This Weeklong Event Was Historic. 

It is going to take awhile for all of the records that were smashed by this historic long-duration polar outbreak to be complied. Widespread record cold sent the region into the deep freeze for more than a week in many nearby areas. Although most locations in Texas did not break the "Coldest Night In Texas" all-time record lows set back on February 12, 1899...some did and others were close. Midland rose above freezing for the first time today in the past 91/2 days. Just incredible.

Thankfully in New Mexico, we did not get nearly as cold as the brutal Polar outbreak of February 2011. Or January 1962 and February 8, 1933. Years with low temperatures below 0ºF in Southeastern New Mexico. This Polar invasion was bad but not nearly as bad as years past. 

Not only was the cold remarkable (especially the duration and many days in a row below freezing) so was the snowfall in Texas. In New Mexico not so much. It's been much colder in New Mexico including Southeastern New Mexico. Our local storm total snowfall totals came nowhere close to the Blizzard of December 2015 but our snow did add to the misery. More on this later when the data becomes available.
