Yesterday's Peak Wind Gusts - Winter Next Week?

Next Friday. ECMWF Snowfall Total Forecast. Next Weeks Winter Weather? A potential winter storm (our first for the season) is in the cards from the middle to the end of next week. Computer model forecasts indicate that a strong closed mid-upper level low may develop over the central plains of the U.S. next week. If so then this may send our first backdoor arctic cold front into the local area. Last night's European forecast model (ECMWF) forecasts light snow locally by the end of next week. You know the's way too early to get overly excited about this since we are a week to ten days away from the event. More on this later. The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!

October 18, 20-21. Carlsbad, New Mexico.  Cirrocumulus   is one of the three main genus-types of high-altitude tropospheric  clouds , the other two being  cirrus  and  cirrostratus . [3]  They usually occur at an altitude of 5 to 12 km (16,000 to 39,000 ft). Like lower-altitude cumuliform and stratocumuliform clouds, cirrocumulus signifies  convection . Unlike other high-altitude tropospheric clouds like cirrus and cirrostratus, cirrocumulus includes a small amount of liquid water droplets, although these are in a  supercooled  state. Ice crystals are the predominant component, and typically, the ice crystals cause the supercooled water drops in the cloud to rapidly freeze, transforming the cirrocumulus into cirrostratus. This process can also produce precipitation in the form of a  virga  consisting of ice or snow. Thus, cirrocumulus clouds are usually short-lived. [4]  They usually only form as part of a short-lived transitional phase within an area of cirrus clouds and can also form
