Tropical Storm Adrian.

The seasons first Tropical Storm (Adrian) continues to strengthen well southeast of the southern tip of Baja, Mexico. Tropical Storm Adrian is forecast to rapidly strengthen into a Hurricane within 24 hours, as it continues to move slowly off towards the northwest.

After taking a look at the Florida State computer model forecast trajectories (12Z run this morning) of the remnants of Tropical Storm/Hurricane Adrian (graphic above), you would wonder if some this moisture will get pulled northward into the Desert Southwest, as well as New Mexico in about a week or so.

This is a tough question to answer right now. Its possible that this could happen, and its possible that Adrian will move too far off to the west for any of its moisture to get drawn this far north.

Much will depend upon the position of the mid-upper level ridge of high pressure now parked over the area, and its position in about a week or so. This will be interesting to watch over the next week. What a great start to our annual Summer Monsoon this would be, and a potential break in the extreme drought that continues its death grip on the area if this happened.
