April 14, 2022. Near Hondo, New Mexico. Regional 180-Day Precipitation Totals & Deficits. (Oct 26, 2021 - April 23, 2022). Looking at the 180-day (Oct 26, 2021 - April 23, 2022) precipitation totals and deficits for New Mexico and the region is somewhat depressing. Clearly, we had a very dry late fall and winter and this continues this spring. The Sacramento Mountains have generally received 1"-3" of precipitation during this time frame for the wettest locations locally. But that still puts them some 2"-3" below normal for the time frame. Cloudcroft has recorded 49.6" of snowfall for the season to date which ranks as the 38th driest (for snowfall) in the past 119 years. Ruidoso's snowfall records for the season are incomplete at this time. US Drought Monitor. New Mexico. Texas. Long Ranger Temperature & Precipitation Outlook. (May - June - July).

April 14, 2022. Sierra Blanca Peak West Of Ruidoso, NM. Catastrophic High Wind/Blowing Dust/Fire Weather Event Today! NWS Albuquerque Weather Overview. NWS Midland Experimental Graphic Hazardous Weather Outlook Today. High Wind Warnings , Watches, and Wind Advisories cover much of New Mexico and the area today into this evening. Southwest winds will crank up with a vengeance mid-morning and increase throughout the day. Current thinking is that the highest wind gusts and associated wind damage will occur across central, northern, and northeastern New Mexico where some gusts may reach or exceed 80 mph! Elsewhere we can expect to see southwesterly winds gusting up to around 60-70 mph across parts of southern New Mexico, the Sacramento and Capitan Mountains, and the eastern plains. Southeastern New Mexico is expected to see these winds gust up to around 55 mph. A few locally higher gusts are certainly possible. The Guadalupe Mountains will see southwesterly wind gusts of around 70 mph. Win

Time-Lapse Video & Photos Of The McBride Forest Fire - Ruidoso, New Mexico 4-14-2022.

McBride Forest Fire - Ruidoso, New Mexico. When the McBride fire broke out in Ruidoso this past Tuesday afternoon I wanted to drive up there and shoot some videos and photos but was not able to do so. Instead, I drove up to Ruidoso yesterday (Thursday) and shot the enclosed time-lapse video and photos. Some of the hardest-hit areas as far as wind damage goes were still closed to public access as was the burn area itself. So I will have to wait until they get the fire out and open those areas back up in order to get more revealing photos of the burn scare. What I did notice was that there were a lot of cleanup crews out and about cleaning up the fallen pines and hauling the debris off. Good job on the clean-up. Hats off to the fire-fighting crews who are battling these two fires. Although the situation is bad it could have been a lot worse. I shot this time-lapse (8x the normal speed) of the McBride Forest Fire in Ruidoso, New Mexico that continued to burn on Thursday, April 14, 2022. S
