Drying Out Before More Moisture

July 23rd, 2014 at 12:13 pm by under Weather

More storms are expected this afternoon and evening with the best chance being central and west. Areas along and west of the Continental Divide will have best shot at storm develop this afternoon. However, the central mountain chain will also see it’s fair share of storms as well. With high pressure sitting to the north, any storms that develop over the mountains will drift westward. In Albuquerque, watch storms over the Sandias to drift into the metro. In Santa Fe, keep your eye on the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

As the high begins to shift south Thursday, the storm chances will shift to the northwest and Northern Mountains. The state continues to dry out during the day Friday. By the weekend, the high shifts back to the west, allowing the door to open for fronts to enter the northeast. The first front Friday night makes little progress across the northeast. A second front pushes farther into the state Saturday night. Another front pushes in Sunday night. With these reinforcing shots of moisture, storm development northeast, east central, and in the Northern Mountains will increase. Some moisture could push it’s way into Albuquerque and Santa Fe along with a gusty east wind.

With high pressure sitting to the north, storms firing over the mountains will drift east today.
