High pressure at the mid-upper levels of the atmosphere continues to control our local weather and will do so for the rest of this week and into this weekend. Come the first of next week (starting next Monday) changes are on the way.

Our first fall-like storm will dive southeastward out of the Pacific Northwest and into the central Rockies by the first of next week. The jet stream will crave out a mid-upper level closed low that will swing across southern Colorado and northern New Mexico next Monday and Tuesday. This based on this morning's GFS model forecasts. Details concerning the timing and location of this storm will likely change as we get closer to the first of next week and new data is fed into the forecast models.

But overall we should see a trend next week towards cooling temps with a continued shutdown of our annual monsoon.

Snow is in the forecast for parts of the Rockies according to this morning's GFS model forecasts. Last night's European (ECMWF) model picks up on this as well.
