After spending a lot of time talking about hurricanes and the tropics, we’re going to head on down to the Land of Enchantment, where something needs to go seriously awry to get a hurricane.
At 953AM, ET Santa Fe was reporting mostly cloudy skies with a temperature of 56 degrees. Clouds were fairly pervasive across the region, as there was a very week upper level wave leading to a well defined circulation over northeastern New Mexico. It won’t amount to much more than clouds across the state today, and a fairly impressive looking satellite image.
The upper level trough, as well as some lee troughing at the surface will remain persistent, however, and that low pressure will tap into a disturbance developing over the Bay of Campeche. Moisture will spill northward through the day and into tomorrow. There won’t be any synoptic organization in the New Mexico area, rather some showers in the mountains around Santa Fe. Tomorrow looks like a better potential for showers, but it looks fairly overcast on Monday as well.

The threat for rain is low enough, as you can see, that the Weather Channel didn’t even include it in their forecast. Also, most outlets are going way below guidance, which is interesting to me.
