Monsoonal pattern to develop this week

-A A +A

The National Weather Service has issued the following special weather statement:

THE RECENT PERIOD OF ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND GENERALLY DRY WEATHER CONDITIONS WILL END WEDNESDAY AS THE REMNANTS OF AN EASTERLY WAVE USHER A SURGE OF MONSOON MOISTURE NORTHWARD THROUGH ARIZONA... AS WELL AS CENTRAL AND WESTERN NEW MEXICO.

ONCE THE MOISTURE ARRIVES... SOUTHERLY FLOW WILL KEEP IT IN PLACE FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE WORK WEEK AND POSSIBLY INTO THE WEEKEND. DAILY ROUNDS OF SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL INCREASE IN COVERAGE TO NUMEROUS AT TIMES IN THE MOUNTAINS AND NEAR NEW MEXICO'S WESTERN BORDER.

SOME THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN AND MINOR FLOODING. WHEN HEAVY RAINFALL DEVELOPS ON RECENTLY BURNED FORESTS... THE LACK OF VEGETATION AND BAKED GROUND CAN EASILY RESULT IN FLASH FLOODING WITHIN AND BELOW THE BURN SCARS. AT THIS TIME...

THE RISK FOR BURN SCAR FLASH FLOODING APPEARS TO BE GREATEST ON WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY... ESPECIALLY DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS.
