Showers and storms will diminish through the overnight hours, making way for clearing skies. Temps stay mild through Tuesday morning before another round of showers and storms develop for the afternoon. Once again, the higher terrain will be favored for storms. Some of those storms could then roll into the valley.
Wednesday a back door cold front will edge into the northeast, help trigger more afternoon storms from the Northern Mountains to the northeast highlands. Meanwhile, a ridge of high pressure will work in from the west. This will dry out the western half of the state Wednesday.
The drying trend will continue to work east Thursday and Friday as the ridge continues to build in. As the state dries out, temperatures will heat up. By the weekend, Albuquerque will reach the mid to upper 90s. The south will push near to above the 100° mark making for a sun-filled, but hot Father’s Day.
Early next week, there are indications that an early monsoon setup will form and tap into rich Pacific moisture. This will reignite our shot at showers and storms across the state and help take the edge off the heat.
