Yesterday's Storm Summary - Significant High Wind/Blowing Dust/Critically Dangerous Fire Weather Event Sunday - Tuesday?

February 12, 2024
Snow Drifts In Roswell, NM.

Next Winter Storm Late This Weekend Into The First Of Next Week.


Valid At 5 PM MST Tuesday, February 27, 2024.

GFS Peak Wind Gust Forecast.

Valid At 5 PM MST Tuesday, February 27, 2024.

Although it's a tad early to get specific with the details about our next winter storm to impact the state, and region, this next storm looks like it will be stronger, colder, and windier than yesterday's storm.

Lowland rain showers and mountain snows look possible across western and northern New Mexico Sunday into Tuesday. Some of the mountain snows may be heavy. There may be some snow across the higher elevations of the Sac's but overall the storm track will be too far to the north for anything significant. 

For Southeastern New Mexico and nearby areas it already appears that our main weather story will be another Significant High Wind/Blowing Dust/Critically Dangerous Fire Weather Event. Oh joy right? Sorry folks but this looks like a windy, dusty, dry spring to me.

Storm Summary For Wednesday, Feb 21, 2024.

My high temp here at our home in Carlsbad yesterday was 88F. Most of southeastern New Mexico saw highs in the mid 80's. Most of the Sacramento Mountain communities saw highs in the 60's except for the highest elevations where the 50's were noted. Spring has sprung.
