Valid Today - Thu July 7, 2011.

A sprawling mid-upper level ridge of high pressure is centered over the 4-Corners Region this morning. The center of the ridge is forecast to slide off to the east, and will be located over north Texas by the middle of the week.

Finally, our annual summer monsoon is firing up. Currently Arizona is the lucky receipt of this moisture working northward out of Mexico. Although a weak surge of monsoonal moisture has been oozing into parts of western and northern New Mexico the past couple of days. Forecast models are indicating that a deeper surge of moisture may work its way into southern and western New Mexico by next weekend.

Meanwhile, SE NM remains hot and dry with little to no chance of meaningful rainfall into the end of next week. A few isolated t-storms are forecast over the Guadalupe, Sacramento, and Capitan mountains today and tomorrow.

Our high temperatures are forecast to be in the upper 90's today into Tuesday. By Wednesday we can expect to see these highs climb back up to around 100. Our highs will climb back up into the 100 - 105 range from Thursday into next weekend.
