Carlsbad, New Mexico.
Mountain Wave Clouds (Altocumulus Standing Lenticular Clouds).
Regional Peak Wind Gusts Reported Christmas Eve.
Once again the Carlsbad ASOS wind equipment which is the Automated Surface Weather Observing Station located at the Carlsbad Airport failed Christmas Eve afternoon for a time. Thus the peak wind reported is way too low. Especially since the equipment at nearby Carlsbad Caverns measured a peak gust to 58 mph and the Queen Raws measured a peak gust to 62 mph.
