Jemez Mountain Thunderhead

April Thunderstorm Over the Jemez

Photos such as this are normally reserved for July and August. A combination of Gulf moisture and New Mexico mountains will form afternoon thunderstorms almost every afternoon during the summer months of July and August. To see this activity during the month of April is pretty unusual. While this storm dropped very little rain on the Jemez, I am hoping that this is a good sign. Weather forecasters are saying that the ‘La Nina’ pattern is loosening its grip and is being replaced with ‘El Nino’ which historically means more moisture for the Southwest. Our snow totals for this past winter were not bad, as I calculated about 80% of normal snowfall here in La Cueva. Perhaps, with a return to El Nino conditions, we can get back to average or better moisture in New Mexico and the Jemez Mountains. The seven day forecast is showing an increasing chance of rain towards the end of this week. Maybe we’ll get a drop or two.

This Saturday, September 24th, is free fishing day in the State of New Mexico. This fishing opportunity is designated twice a year by the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish.

No fishing license is required by any angler this Saturday to fish any public water in the State of New Mexico. All other rules and regulations apply.

We would hope that you take this opportunity to visit the beautiful Jemez Mountains and bring a friend that might not otherwise want to fish, because of cost.
