Saturday soaker signals change in weather pattern

-A A +A

A round of thunderstorms rumbled through the Los Alamos vicinity Saturday afternoon and evening delivering another inch or so of badly-needed precipitation to the area. Those storms came in from the east, which signals a deviation in the weather pattern that promises to deliver lower temps and the potential for torrential downpours through at least Tuesday of this week.

Typically, weather systems move from west to east in the United States and the rest of the Northern Hemisphere. This will not be the case over the next four to five days as meteorologists track an area of low pressure moving in the reverse direction from the eastern states towards the southwestern states. It’s not unheard of to see a weather system move east to west in the United States, but it’s certainly not common, according to forecasters.

After weekend highs in the mid-80s, the high temperature Monday is expected to come in at about 68 degrees. Highs throughout next week are predicted to be in the low to mid-70s, and rain chances remain in the forecast for the next seven to 10 days.
