Week Starts DrierAugust 18th, 2014 at 5:15 am by John Smith under Weather
Today will be quieter across much of the state. High pressure sitting overhead will limit storm development to mainly the higher terrain. While a spot storm will be possible elsewhere, warm temperatures will be the bigger story. Highs will reach the low 90s in Albuquerque and the upper 90s across much of the east.
As the high drifts east on Tuesday, southerly moisture will return to the west. That moisture will continue to spread across the state through midweek as the high continues to move into Texas. In addition, there are two tropical systems sitting in the eastern Pacific. It’s possible additional moisture could be drawn up from these storms for the middle and latter part of the workweek.
