October 28, 2011 • Local News

The National Weather Service in Albuquerque predicts unusual chilly weather with temperatures hovering around 39 degrees through today for Chaves County.

Thursday, mid-day temperatures had dropped to the upper [auth] 30s in an unusual drop at this time of year from Wednesday’s sunny day. Temperatures are 22 degrees below normal. This type of drop was due to a cold front moving from Colorado which was hit by its first significant snowstorm of the season.

In highway conditions locally, U.S. 54 was under a severe weather watch due to accompanying high winds early Thursday morning.

Those with outdoor sensitive plants and agricultural interests are warned to watch the near freezing drop.
