Weather Service says dry, warm pattern to persist next week

A dry and warm pattern that began mid-week in central and northern New Mexico will persist next week as strong high pressure continues to build over the state, meteorologists from the National Weather Service said.

Thunderstorm chances will remain low through the weekend with storms generally favoring the higher terrain. Showers and storms will attempt to develop over the higher terrain of the Continental Divide and the central mountain chain Friday, but slow steering flow should allow most cells to rain themselves out quickly with very isolated and localized impacts.

“We’re not going to have very much moisture in the atmosphere to work with, so it’s going to be a very dry and very warm pattern across New Mexico,” said Daniel Porter, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Albuquerque.

High temperatures across the state will reach several degrees above normal.

Highs in Albuquerque will warm to around 90 degrees Friday and the upper 80s Saturday and Sunday under sunny skies. Low temperatures are expected in the lower 60s each evening through Tuesday.

Meteorologists said they are keeping an eye out for the remnants of a tropical disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico that is forecast to move over the Big Bend area of Texas by Saturday.

Forecasters expect remnant tropical moisture to spread south and southwest of the Big Bend into Sunday while high pressure keeps hold over New Mexico.

Into next week, however, the forecast will likely focus on this remnant of tropical moisture over Mexico that could stage itself for a northward move into New Mexico.

“It’s something to monitor this week and as we go into next week,” Porter said.
