In spite of all of the media hype and craziness concerning Climate Change aka Global Warming, the data tells a different story. For much of the U.S. the average year-to-date temperature is running below normal (blue and green shaded areas).

However when you step back and look at the big picture, you see that even with a hotter than normal July, the overall trend for the year so far  is our average temps are close to normal, and even below normal in a few areas.

New Mexico's average temperature so far this July shows a mixed bag of variables. Its been warmer than normal across the eastern and southeastern plains, as well as the south central mountains, while much of the rest of the state is close to normal.

Hot dry conditions are forecast to continue for the local area into the end of next week.

Some of the models argue that a shift in the location of the center of the high by the end of next week may open up the door for a more southerly flow and influx of moisture into the area. Thus more seasonal like temps and increased chances
