24-Hour Rainfall Totals.
(As of 7 AM MDT).
Recent expectations of additional rainfall across southeastern New Mexico from our annual summer monsoon this week, have so far, proved to be rather disappointing. It appears we have one more shot at seeing scattered thunderstorms pop up across the plains today...then our chances fade into the weekend. Again the mountains have the best shot at seeing rain.
At the mid-upper levels of the atmosphere an easterly wave located near the Texas Big Bend continues to move slowly westward into Mexico. This trend will continue for the next several days. It will eventually help shove our southerly monsoonal flow westward into Arizona, and cut off our chances for rain in southeastern New Mexico into the weekend.
Our high temperatures are forecast to remain in the mid-upper 90's today into the weekend. By the end of the weekend into the first of next week it appears we will once again be flirting with the century mark.
