Summer Isn't Ready To Give Up Yet - 100º Temps By Friday.

September 2, 2021.
Wall Cloud SE Of Hope, NM.



It's the time of the year when we start looking at temperatures in Alaska and Canada to monitor the seasonal march of fall cold fronts southward into the U.S. As of 7:30 AM MDT this Tuesday morning we find that overall it's not that cold in Alaska and much of Canada, yet.

A year ago today (Sept 7, 2020) a deep and cold closed upper-level low was parked near the 4-Corners Region. A strong arctic cold front was marching southward down the Eastern Plains of New Mexico. Winter Storm Watches were in effect for the Northern Mountains and the Northeastern Plains of New Mexico. 

Here at our home in Carlsbad, NM I registered a high temp of 100º on the 7th, and on the 9th behind the cold front, my thermometer only managed to climb up to 54º. Artesia reported 98º and 49º for highs on the 7th and 9th. Roswell reported 99º and 47º. Ruidoso 89º and 47º. Cloudcroft 80º and 53º. Elk 91º and 49º.

Nothing close to those readings is in our immediate forecast (on the cold side of the thermometer). With a mid-level doom of high pressure parked nearby this week see above to near-record high temps. SE NM will likely see our afternoon high temps reach 100º or slightly above late this week.
