It is time to look ahead at the long range forecast, as told by the GFS model.
The atmosphere will dry out and warm up over the next week for the Rio Rancho to Socorro area. Clouds will be few and far between, and humidity will drop as we enter a slight ridge between troughs.
Overall, conditions will be quite dry. There is virtually no chance of precipitation for the next week.
Today’s trough is moving east and out of the state. The next potential trough will strike next week. It is shown west of the state on Monday, still heading east, on this 300 mb GFS chart.
Temperatures will begin to climb, starting tomorrow. There will be some light Warm Air Advection (WAA) from the south on Sunday, boosting temperatures into the 70’s in Socorro.
