Amazing Temperature Gradient - 11:00 AM MST Decmeber 17th

There is an amzing, strong temperature gradient present this morning over west Texas and eastern New Mexico. Just grabbed the above surface plot from NCAR RAL/RAP. I see one station in the Big Bend with 81 F and to the north, Clayton, New Mexico, has moderate snow and 4 F.


  1. 1 huge and 1 decent temperature gradient, plus quite the humidity gradient E of the Big Bend. So windy here in Las Cruces, I think your lawn furniture might end up in NM!

  2. David - do you have a new email address? let me know. Bob
