Both the GFS and the ECMWF models are forecasting a pattern change by next weekend with a trough of low pressure moving across the northern states and sending a fall-like cold front southward. A second trough of low pressure is forecast to move into the Pacific Northwest.

A cold front will dip southward into the central U.S. by next weekend. How far south is uncertain at this time. Meanwhile we are forecast to remain above normal temperature-wise here in most of New Mexico and nearby areas. 

Typically the southward moving cold fronts will get a little stronger over time as we head deeper into September. September is on average our wettest month of the year here in Southeastern New Mexico too. So hopefully we will start to cool down and see more rain in the coming weeks. Its been a long hot summer and most of us are ready for cooler and wetter weather.
