AZ/NM To Get Monsoon Rains & Invest 97L.

"Storm coverage is expected to increase further early next week
across all of western and a good portion of central NM. Models
still holding to somewhat varying degrees to the eastward shift
of the upper high and thus allowing greater amts of moisture to
flow in from the s and se. The easterly wave coming slowly west
and nwwrd across Mexico should help to some degree with this as
well. With the increasing moisture lvls still being advertised
decided to add locally heavy rain wording to the scattered/chance
to numerous/likely pops areas starting today and for the aftns
through Monday. Today may seem a bit too soon for that, but given
the uptick of yesterday felt that we could get away with that as
early as today. As previous day shifter indicated flash flood
watches may be needed for portions of next week depending on
antecedent heavy rainfall locations and presence of any
discernible dynamic and/or thermodynamic markers. Still looks like
the west half will be more favored than farther east for the more
widespread heavier rains, at least for the better part of the
upcoming week. Finally, the real deal monsoon looks like it is
kicking in!"

Although our annual monsoon appears to be kicking in over most of Arizona and New Mexico southeastern New Mexico will for the most part be left high and dry over this upcoming week. Most of the thunderstorm activity associated with the monsoon will occur from the Guadalupe, Sacramento, and Capitan mountains and westward. That's not to say that a few isolated storms won't pop up over the plains at times but overall we are expected to miss the main show.

It would appear that the Sacramento mountains could end up with some decent storm totals by a week from now...they need it so bring it on.

All eyes are on a couple of potential tropical storms possibly affecting the Gulf of Mexico and nearby areas next week. Invest 97L appears at this time to be the stronger of the two (96L, 97L). Its early yet so don't get too caught up in the forecast track of this system. Still room and time for lots of error and forecast corrections but worth keeping an eye on.
