High pressure continues to dominate our weather…

11-26-21: 12:30 pm update…

At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 43 and the low was 19. Our home in “Little Siberia”, about a mile north of Hatcher Lake, hit 11 degrees this morning. There has been zero precipitation over the past 24 hours.

We need a trough or an upper level low to bring us our next round of precipitation, but at least in the short term, I can’t find one. There is one over Baja, CA, but it will only be impacting southern NM and Texas over the next 48 hours.

High pressure will be in control for the next week with high temperatures rising to near or exceeding record territory early next week. The record high for Monday and Tuesday is 58 degrees and our predicted high temps for those days is 60.

An upper level low over Baja CA will move east over the next couple of days. Unfortunately, precipitation from this low will stay to our south, only impacting southern NM and Texas.

Temperatures will be running around 20 degrees above normal on Monday. We could set a record high on Monday and Tuesday of next week.

The latest 6-10 day forecast continues to keep us in the “likely below normal” zone for precipitation.
