It is time to look ahead at the long range forecast, as told by the GFS model.
The next week will be warm and dry. There is virtually no chance of precipitation for the next week.
While the rest of the nation will continue to see troughs and ridges, none of the troughs dip south enough to directly affect New Mexico. The polar jet is too far north, as shown in the 300 mb GFS chart below:
Temperatures will begin to climb, starting tomorrow. While there is no strong thermal advection in either direction, the 850 mb GFS chart shows warm temperatures for the next week.
I will probably spend my weekend working in my garden. The weather is expected to reach the high 70s this weekend, so I think I’ll take advantage of the good weather.
Thank you for reading my post.
