Current Conditions 2.1 NNW Downtown Carlsbad, NM

Current Drought Status - Outlooks - Friday's Peak Wind Gusts.

April 14, 2022.
Near Hondo, New Mexico.

(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.

Not Much Hope For Drought Relief.

Most of New Mexico and West Texas remains in the severe to exceptional drought category. Sadly there is not much if any real hope at this time in the long-range forecasts for meaningful relief. Long-range forecasts call for the drought to persist through July. Temperatures are forecast to be above normal with precipitation below normal from now through July.




Thankfully we dogged a bullet as far as fires are concerned here in Southeastern New Mexico including the Sacramento, Capitan, and the Guadalupe Mountains. We did have the very small James Fire east of Cloudcroft near the 16-Springs Canyon area but it was quickly contained and extinguished. Three other fires were reported yesterday afternoon as well. One near Caprock, one near Hagerman, and another northeast of Carlsbad. Those we quickly knocked down as well. Our hats are off to all of our local firefighters, law enforcement personnel, forest service officials, and others involved in protecting our communities! Thank you a million times over.

This has already been a bad fire season for New Mexico and it potentially may very well get worse before it gets better. A lot of people are praying for rain and that's not in the forecasts anytime soon. At least as far as drought relief is concerned.
