John’s Monday Afternoon Forecast

It’s going to be a difficult week for storms as high pressure dominates our weather. Despite the less than desirable setup, some moisture will still manage to sneak under the high. The best shot at storms today will be along the central mountain chain and across the northeast. A spot storm will be possible across the west and Rio Grande Valley.

High pressure shifts north into Colorado Tuesday, allowing for just a little more moisture across the state. This should lead to slightly better storm coverage across the state. However, only expect scattered storms at best. The high shifts back into the state Wednesday and limits storm activity through the weekend. Late in the weekend, it’s possible a cold front could bring another deeper round of moisture into the state.

With the dry conditions in place, expect afternoon highs to stay 5° – 10° above average through most of the week. As high pressure sets into the state for the latter half of the workweek, afternoon highs in the Albuquerque metro will reach the mid-90s, while the south and east continue to flirt with the century mark. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
