John’s Thursday Afternoon Forecast

Most of the state continues to dry out today, with the exception of the Four Corners and Northern Mountains. The high that’s been sitting over Colorado the past couple of days will make it’s move into New Mexico. Flow around the high will allow for moisture to wrap around through Arizona and into the northern part of the state. The northwest and Northern Mountains will be favored for the most storms, with isolated storms elsewhere.

The drying trend continues through Friday and Saturday. Storms will still continue over areas like the higher terrain, but most locations will remain dry as temperatures heat up. Highs in Albuquerque will reach the mid 90s by Saturday. Across the south and east, triple digit heat is expected.

By Sunday, the high will shift back to the west. This will allow the door to open for fronts to enter the state. The first arrives late Saturday and could fire a couple of storms in the far northeastern corner of the state. The second moves in Sunday allowing for a much better round of storms northeast. As the front makes progress through the Santa Fe and Albuquerque metro areas, a strong canyon wind is likely to develop Sunday night.

The high continues to sit west early next week allowing for regular round of moisture to keep storms going through the workweek.
