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. One trough digs deep into southern California, only to attenuate as it moves across Arizona. 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.
This week is shaping up to be beautiful as well. We may see a few clouds this weekend, but the temperature will remain warm and precipitation will be highly unlikely.
