NWS Albuquerque Fall Equinox Feature.

New Mexico is no stranger to active fall weather. The transition from summer to winter brings delightful relief to the blistering heatwaves of summer. The fall transition is also associated with a wide variety of weather as the jet stream starts visiting the region from the north. Cold blasts, damaging wind storms, severe thunderstorms, heavy snow, and flash flooding can all occur during the fall months, sometimes all on the same day! Fall also brings a glorious display of changing foliage to many areas of the state.

We Dry Out & Stay Warm Until Sunday.

Our recent round of thunderstorms will come to an abrupt end after today. Our persistent stubborn mid-upper level ridge of high pressure depicted above will shift a little further to the west thus shutting down our monsoonal flow from Mexico.

The forecast for the rest of the week calls for high temps a little above seasonal normals today into the upcoming weekend. Highs will range from the low to mid 90's across the southeastern plains and the southern deserts to the upper 70's in the Ruidoso area and the upper 60's in the Cloudcroft area.

A seasonally fall-like cold front will arrive in the local area this coming Sunday. Although it won't bring significant cooling to the local area it will drop our daytime highs and nighttime lows down to slightly below normal by the beginning of next week. 

Watching The Gulf.

A tropical wave has developed a few hundred miles east of the Windward Islands. This system has an 80% chance of developing into a Tropical Storm over the next five days. We will have to keep an eye on its potential track and strength to see whether or not it ends up in the Gulf of Mexico as a Hurricane by the end of the weekend or next week.
