With high-pressure moving farther to our northeast will lead to a change in the areas that will be hit by storms.  Western and central sections of the state will be favored for the heaviest and most frequent rain over the next couple of days.  In the Albuquerque area we will pick up afternoon showers in a scattered fashion with highs in the low 90s.

Areas of northwestern New Mexico have best chance to pick up heavier rain as well as southwestern Colorado. Next week looks to get increasingly interesting.  With monsoonal moisture in place a storm may well move east to west from the Midwest toward New Mexico. This could touch off additional storms across a good portion of the state and keep a very good monsoon season going strong.

    Just wanted to say how much we appreciate your forecasts!

    So relieved knowing that perhaps we might have a “real” productive monsoon season this year!

    And, about that smoke from the fires in June. We had to disarm our smoke detector in our home for the first time ever because it would start to go off (in the middle of the night of course!) when the amounts of smoke particulate in the air became concentrated enough to activate our alarm! We’ve had fires before….can you explain why this happened? Or are we having a nightmare and the alarm is the “Christine”(Steven King) of all smoke alarms that goes off on it’s own! LOL! We live in a semi rural area ~12 miles south of SF and have been here 35 years. Maybe the smoke alarms are much better at sensing smoke!!

    Just wondered if there was a meteorological-climate change component going on here. Hotter fires??

    Thanks for your attention to this inquiry.
