Yesterday's Peak Wind Gusts - Winter Next Week?
Cloudcroft, New Mexico.
ECMWF Snowfall Total Forecast.
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 drill...it'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.
