Pattern Change Next Week.
Our coldest morning so far this winter occurred Tuesday morning with many locations in Southeastern New Mexico dropping down into the single digits, as well as some mountain locations.
A High Wind Watch remains in effect for the Guadalupe and Delaware Mountains. West winds are forecast to gust up to around 65 to 80 mph. West winds will likely gust up into the 30 to 45 mph range across the southeastern plains, and the Sacramento and Capitan Mountains.
After seeing our afternoon high temps climb up into the 60's today and the low 70's tomorrow yet another surge of modified arctic air will work its way south into the southeastern plains Thursday night into Friday. Colder temps are forecast for the local area behind the front with lows in the teens to near 20F Friday night. Highs on Friday and Saturday are forecast to be in the upper 30's and 40's across the southeastern plains.
A pattern change starts this weekend as the next in a series of Pacific storms dives southeastward out of the Pacific Northwest and into the Great Basin and Desert Southwest next week.
Chances of lowland rain showers and higher mountain snows will begin to increase across the state beginning late this upcoming weekend into the middle of next week.
