It’s hard to believe, but yes we have a few chances for some scattered showers. The best chance for rain and the areas that will likely pick up the most precip., will be the Northern Mountains. In the Metro it’s possible we could pick up close to a .10″ of inch of rain. The best chance for rainfall will be during the later morning hours into the afternoon. It may not be a lot of rain, but these systems will lower our fire danger over the next week.
A few more disturbances will pass through the region even after Monday! A trough of low pressure just off the West Coast will continue to pump in moisture from the Pacific and send some disturbances our way keeping the chance for some rain in the forecast.

A couple of disturbances are going to pass through the region over the next 7 days. These systems will give New Mexico a decent chance at some rain for much of the week. Here in Albuquerque our best chance for showers will be on Monday. Now none of these systems will drop our temperatures because they are originating in the Southwest and they are warm-core storms. So temperatures will be rather seasonable or slightly below average. Keeping temps at or just below average will at least reduce the fire danger to a certain degree over the next week.
Check back tomorrow on more details on the rain chances for Monday!

Temperatures will continue to rebound after plummeting on Thursday. A few dry thunderstorms could pop-up in the North and West this weekend. Otherwise it will be sunny and nice with winds staying fairly light for this time of year. A ridge builds over New Mexico this weekend and that’s why temperatures will climb back to more seasonable highs.
Another storm system heads into the region late Sunday into Monday. Most of the energy will stay to our north. But, there’s a slight chance for some scattered showers along the north on Monday. Another storm system heads our by mid-week. Unlike the last storm system that moved in, these won’t cool us down. That’s because they’re coming off the Pacific.

In most areas we will touch the freezing mark by Friday morning. Cool Northwesterly flow, clear skies, and light winds will help temperatures drop overnight. Temperatures will slowly warm up on Friday and they’ll climb back to more seasonable highs this weekend. Warm flow off the Pacific will help temperatures return to more spring-like conditions.
Another storm system could trigger some scattered showers next Monday. But, unlike the last storm system this one won’t cool us down.

A cold storm dropping down from Colorado will spread very windy conditions and temps that are well below average for this time of year. Winds ramp up to gusts of 55 mph here in the city overnight. the winds will continue to rip through early Thursday before dying down. Tomorrows highs will top out in the mid 50′s with sunny skies.
As far as snow goes most of the snow will be confined to the east slopes of the northern mountains and NE highlands. 1″-3″ will be possible over the Sangre de Cristo mtns. By early Thursday snow will clear and the sun will emerge.
Temps will slowly rebound through the weekend with another series of storms possible by the beginning of next week.
