Chris’ Sunday Night Forecast

More scattered storm chances are ahead for the upcoming week.

A better supply of monsoon moisture will then move into the state to begin the week. An area of high pressure is going to shift farther to the east. This positioning will allow for moisture to move into central and western New Mexico. This supply of moisture will act as fuel for daily rounds of afternoon and evening storms to start the week. Central and western New Mexico will see the best shot at rain to with fewer storms across the east. Then the moisture plume will shift farther west by mid to late week. This setup will favor the best shot for storms around the Gila, Four Corners and southern Colorado with fewer storms across central and eastern New Mexico.

After a fairly active week of storms for portions of New Mexico, another area of high pressure center will setup over the Four Corners. This position of the high will dry parts of the state out and reduce the daily coverage of afternoon storms.
