Tonight 6/9-
Overnight lows will be mild for early June. Smoke from southern Arizona wildfires will continue to stream in.

Otherwise, the main story will be the heat. A Heat Advisory has been issued for Chaves County Thursday and Friday for temperatures exceeding 105 degrees Fahrenheit. A backdoor cold front will help drop temperatures across the east through next week, while western and central areas continue to soar. Know the signs of heat-related illness!

A few storms will persist across far northeast and east central NM this evening, then all eyes (and noses) will be on smoke from the Arizona wildfires shifting into New Mexico. Expect smoky or hazy skies across much of western and central New Mexico Tuesday morning. This may be the rule through much of the week. Otherwise, it will be hot, hot, hot! Temperatures in the 90s and 100s will be common this week!

Sunday evening, June 6th
An Air Quality Alert has been issued for portions of southwestern and central New Mexico for late tonight into Monday morning.

Wildfires in southern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico have produced large amounts of smoke over the past several hours, and this smoke is expected to expand into portions of central New Mexico late tonight and Monday morning.

Anyone living in these areas should be prepared for reduced air quality late tonight throughout the morning hours Monday. Since these impacts are expected to occur overnight, taking precautions such as closing windows before bedtime and turning off evaporative (swamp) coolers can protect residents with pre-existing respiratory conditions. Those with conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, interstitial lung disease, lung cancer, and heart disease will be especially vulnerable to impacts from poor air quality, as will adults over age 65, young children, and pregnant women if smoke concentrations become unhealthy.

Remember, your eyes are your best tools to determine if it is safe
to be outside. Use the 5-3-1 Method available at
https://nmtracking.org/environment/air/FireAndSmoke.html.

If visibility is:

Under 5 miles, the air quality is unhealthy for young children,
adults over age 65, pregnant women, and people with heart
and/or lung disease, asthma or other respiratory illness.
Outdoor activity should be minimized.

Around 3 miles, young children, adults over age 65, pregnant women, and people with heart and/or lung disease, asthma or other respiratory illness should avoid all outdoor activities.

Around 1 mile, the air quality is unhealthy for everyone. People
should remain indoors and avoid all outdoor activities including
running errands. Unless an evacuation has been issued, stay inside
your home, indoor workplace, or in a safe shelter.

Storms will continue to impact eastern NM through late tonight while quieter weather conditions are expected across the west. The active pattern continues over the next several days with daily rounds of showers and thunderstorms expected. A few strong to severe storms can't be ruled out, but locally heavy rainfall from slow-moving storms may be the bigger concern. Drier conditions look to arrive early next week as an area of high pressure causes temperatures to soar.

Fog has developed this morning across eastern NM which is reducing visibility down to 1/4 mile in some locations such as Clines Corners and Raton. Use caution if you're traveling in the east this morning! Fog will clear by late morning. Otherwise, another round of showers and thunderstorms will form over the high terrain by early this afternoon and move southeast onto the plains. Some of these storms may turn strong to severe with large hail and damaging winds. The active pattern continues as daily rounds of thunderstorms will be expected through at least the next 7 days.

Very heavy rain fell in southern Lincoln and western Chaves counties yesterday. Radar estimated more than 5 inches of rain fell in that area! Here's a look at the Rio Ruidoso (east of Ruidoso, running east toward Hondo and Roswell.

Western areas of New Mexico will remain warm and very dry today and tomorrow.

Video taken by Shane Hill (KI5MJR) in Texico NM this afternoon. Severe Thunderstorm Warning issued with 60-70 MPH winds and lots of dirt. Sharing per your discussion with Douglas R. Whitecotton (KB5FWD)

Out of Rio Rancho just south of Mariposa between 1:00 and 2:15 PM 05/31/2021. Videos in comments. Pea to nickel sized hail and torrential rainfall.
Storm chasers were once again out in force Sunday afternoon. A number of us watched this impressive rotating wall cloud and tail cloud along US Hwy 70 some 26 miles west of Roswell, or just east of Sunset and Tinnie. I started my time-lapse with my GoPro Max at 2:25 PM MDT. I never saw a tornado develop and eventually, the wall cloud dissipated. My GoPro Max video got photobombed by one of the chasers. He was from Arizona and we had a great time visiting and talking about the storm. When the cold downdraft outflow to our north hit us it caused my windshield to fog up. This is one of the photos I shot with my Nikon D5600.

What was our total rainfal for South roswell
Storm at 356 south Roswell nm
My wife and I were storm chasing late Friday afternoon when I shot the two photos above of funnel clouds. We were sitting on north Joy RD northwest of Artesia, New Mexico (black circle with the red dot) looking to the northeast. Two funnel clouds developed and lasted a couple of minutes. Based on our location and the direction we were watching the funnel clouds I have circled the likely location of the funnels on the map above. Right over Jackson Rd just inside Chaves County or about 4 miles southwest of Lake Arthur. I included my YouTube time-lapse video of the supercell thunderstorm that produced the two funnel clouds in this blog post. Due to the resolution, it's a little hard to pick out the smaller funnel cloud to the left of the larger one. No enhancements were made to this video. The colors are untouched. It was shot with my GoPro Max from inside of our truck. #nmwx
