Almost 90º Today - Near Freezing Thursday morning.
Strong Cold Front Overnight!
NWS Surface Map Forecast.
Here at our home in Carlsbad, we climbed up to 89ºF while the Carlsbad Airport reached 88ºF for a high-temperature today. Artesia 81ºF, Roswell 80ºF, and Hobbs 75ºF. Say goodbye to these readings for a couple of days as a strong cold front moves south through the region tonight.
High temperatures Wednesday and Thursday will be in the 50's & 60's warming into the 70's by Friday. Low temperatures Thursday morning will be chilly with most of the lower locations seeing the 30's. Scattered pockets of frost will be possible but at this time an overall killing freeze does not look likely except in the mountains.
The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
