Winter Season starts colder-increased snowfall
Updated December 1st, 2013-Rainfall now at 19.42" at the MTD Radio Studios. Combination of snow showers-and sufficient cold temperatures enhancing snow-making, is helping Ski Apache with a much better ski season. My Climate forecast for Winter 2013-2014 is colder temperatures-increased snow over 2012's dry-warm winter.

UPDATED OUTLOOK.......The latest ENSO report continues with neutral SST's (sea surface temperatures) in the Eastern Pacific. Some ENSO readings are close to La Nina thresholds--but neutral SST's are expected to continue. Therefore, we must look to other weather oscillations as a predictor to this Winter Season. My official outlook for Ruidoso-Cloudcroft-and SE New Mexico is colder temperatures with improved precipitation opportunities.
For Southeast New Mexico--Precipitation at the MTD Radio Studios in Lovington stands at 11.75". I anticipate a colder winter-along with increased snow opportunities.
For Ruidoso-Cloudcroft-Alamagordo-- I continue with my forecast of a Winter Season with increased snow opportunities. This will result in an increased snow season for Ruidoso-Cloudcroft and the Ski Resorts of New Mexico.
