August 2 -

We're in a warming trend. High at the LC airport appears to be 99, 98 in Deming, and 102 in Santa Teresa.

Small thunderstorm cells popped up in the afternoon in southern NM. Rain from these are spotty. Below is the radar derived accumulated precipitation at 9:26 pm. I wouldn't count on the darker blue shaded area actually receiving 0.01" of rain. I think it's just a artifact of the radar product. I would believe the areas with lighter shades of blue.
The NWS issued several severe thunderstorm warnings in the late afternoon and evening. A severe thunderstorm warning was issued for Columbus tonight at 6:16pm. Evening thunderstorms provided a show for me tonight. Pic below was snapped at 8:35pm looking west from Las Cruces.
