So Far A Wet August For SE NM.

Shelf Cloud - Carlsbad, New Mexico.

Looking north towards Carlsbad from south of Whites City at a beautiful shelf cloud and very heavy rain this past Tuesday, August 23,2016. That storm dumped anywhere from .37" at our home on the northwest side of Carlsbad to 1.50" to 5.00" on the south and southeast side of Carlsbad.

(August 1st - 26th).

(August 1st - 26th).

So as of the 26th of this month a CoCoRaHS Station located 4.0 miles east of Cloudcroft is the wettest for the month so far with 7.09". In southeastern New Mexico the Carlsbad Airport checks in at 5.03" as of the 26th. 

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
