More Heat Than StormsJuly 18th, 2014 at 8:29 pm by Mark Ronchetti under Weather
High-pressure setting up over New Mexico will keep storms at a minimum this weekend but will allow for temperatures to continue to warm.
Here in the Albuquerque area will top out in the mid to high 90s through the beginning of next week. In Southern New Mexico temperatures 100° or above will be common. As far as storms go most of those will be limited to the higher terrain. Just enough moisture should sneak under the high to fuel storms over mountain areas but I wouldn’t expect a lot of storm activity in the valley.
Below is a look at the long range forecast as we head into winter. Even though it looks like El Niño will be a little weaker than we were hoping there is still a good opportunity for above average precip through the winter. Have a good weekend.
