Slow-moving thunderstorms dumped on the southern Sacramento mountains Friday afternoon. Area radar and satellite estimates indicate that 2"4" of rain fell in the Cox Canyon area northward to the 16-Springs Canyon area. Tim Steeler reported 4.00" of rain Friday afternoon between Cloudcroft and Weed on St Hwy 130. Localized flash flooding occurred. Over the past three days pockets of heavy rainfall have also fallen near the Ruidoso area, northeast of Roswell on the Caprock, and northwest of Hope.

Mid-summer to late summer is the time of the year when afternoon thunderstorms often are slow movers due to light winds aloft that steer them. They also can and often do persist long into the night sometimes after sunrise the following day. This has been the case this summer.

Overall scattered afternoon and nighttime thunderstorms remain in our local forecasts all of this upcoming week. The most widespread activity will occur over the mountains. With the Four Corners mid-upper level high losing its death grip on the state the monsoon will really become active late this week. A cold front is forecast to move south down the eastern plains late in the week which will add to the mix and increase thunderstorm activity over the area even more so. 

Of course, as has been the case so far this summer the Southeastern Plains will be the least favored area to get in on the fun. We won't be totally left out but can expect hit-and-miss storms that won't be as widespread as other areas of the state over the next week.



Like me, most of you are getting tired of the never-ending 100º plus days. The Caprock Climate Co-Op Station located northeast of Roswell on the Caprock leads the pack with 45 days this year that has hit the century mark or higher. The Roswell Airport is a close second with 43 days. Here at our home in Carlsbad, my Davis Vantage Pro Plus PWS has recorded 36 days. Fall can't come soon enough this year.

There Are None So Blind As Those Who "Will - Not" To See...107.
