Recycling & Reusing Moisture for Storms…July 7th, 2013 at 4:43 pm by chrisgilson under Weather
An area of high pressure continues to meander over New Mexico. This system has heated us back up into the 90s, but its also keeping a fresh supply of moisture from moving into the region. But, there’s still a lot of moisture left over in New Mexico. So when we get the daytime heating thunderstorms begin to fire first over the mountains and then eventually they’ll move away from the higher terrain giving lower elevations chances for more rain.
The bad news is as this high pressure system sits on top of us the steering current to move the storms along isn’t very strong. So flash flooding is a problem for Sunday and it’ll likely continue to be an issue into the middle of the week.
