Weather Forecasts

Weather forecasts have become much more accurate over the years thanks to the invention and development of environmental satellites. These satellites take a picture of the entire world every 5 to 10 minutes, and meteorologists use these images to prepare their weather forecasts. Using these images, meteorologists can create a snapshot of the atmospheric environment and run very complex calculations to predict what the atmosphere will do next. This process is called numerical weather prediction (NWP), and it has revolutionized the way we practice weather forecasting.

You can check the latest weather forecast for New Mexico on this page. The forecast includes local weather alerts, a 5-day weather forecast and road conditions with live traffic updates for the region. You can also track storms with the interactive radar, and sign up to receive email alerts when severe weather occurs in your area. You can even leave your own New Mexico weather report or traffic update to help others in need.


Weather satellites send out a picture of the Earth every 5 minutes to determine the weather. These images are taken from high-altitude locations and therefore not visible from the ground, but they provide a good idea of what is happening across the land.

New Mexico is often impacted by rain, wind and dust storms during the monsoon season from June through September. This is because of the North American Monsoon. The monsoon is a change in the circulation over North America, which brings moisture from the Pacific Ocean and Gulf of California to the area. The monsoon also helps to bring heavy rainfall and thunderstorms that can cause flooding, downburst winds and other hazardous conditions.

The 2022 monsoon season was a wet one overall with most areas receiving above average precipitation, especially in the western and northern portions of New Mexico. However, the eastern plains saw below average precipitation for this time of year.

A drier pattern was also seen during July. The percent of normal map at right highlights this general pattern where western and northern areas saw above average precipitation, while central and southeastern areas saw below normal amounts. The August 20th Pecos River flooding event was an exception to this general pattern.

Flash flooding is a common problem during the North American Monsoon, and many parts of New Mexico experienced this during the 2022 monsoon season. This was exacerbated by a number of recent burn scars left over from historic fires that acted as a hydrophobic layer that turned much of the rainfall into runoff, picking up ash, trees, and vegetation along the way. This caused flash flooding to occur in a variety of areas, including the Hermit’s Peak/Calf Canyon, McBride, Black and Bear Trap burn scars.

These incidents were very difficult to predict, as the burn scars are located in remote areas that are not easy to reach with aircraft and equipment. The National Weather Service sent incident meteorologists out from various areas of the country to help provide on-the-ground weather support and forecasts for recovery teams working on these fires.
