The Four Corners will likely see #monsoon moisture, cooler temperatures this week — The Farmington Daily Times

From The Farmington Daily-Times (Mike Easterling):

While monsoon rainfall in the Four Corners has been of a hit-or-miss nature so far this season, most of San Juan County [New Mexico] will see a good chance of precipitation in the week ahead.

Randall Hergert, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Albuquerque, said the moisture outlook for the next several days is very encouraging.

“We are in the monsoon season,” he said. “We are finally getting a nice plume of moisture coming up from Mexico.”

Hergert said storms will begin to form over high terrain on July 21 and continue to build July 21 through July 23, moving out over lower-elevation areas.

“The peak of activity will be toward the end of the week for the Four Corners area,” he said, explaining that a plume of moisture is making its way toward northwest New Mexico and eastern Arizona.
