A Wet August For Most.






















Today marks the first day of the meteorological fall. My favorite time of the year is here. Our temperatures will gradually cool down this month and more so come October. September typically is the wettest month of the year for the Southeastern Plains of New Mexico. 

August was a wet month locally for the most part. A CoCoRaHS Station located 2.3 miles south of Cloudcroft recorded 11.61" for the month of August. Preliminary this is the wettest spot in the state for August. The Sierra Blanca Snotel Station (located just northeast of Ski Apache (10,280') leads the state for year-to-date rainfall with 27.10". 

Long-range forecasts indicate that September will see temperatures near normal in New Mexico with continue slightly above to above-average rainfall. 

Long term average high/low temperatures for Sept 1st-

Roswell 89/65
Artesia 91/61
Carlsbad 93/64
Carlsbad Caverns 87/64
Hobbs 89/63
Picacho 86/57
