July was warmer than normal with near to below normal rainfall.
The first monsoon moisture seeped north into New Mexico to start July. Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms primarily impacted the west and central areas of the state from the 1st through 3rd with little in the way of flash flooding, hail or high winds. The 4th and 5th were even more quiet. Convection picked up a bit on the 6th through 9th, then increased some more from the 10th through 13th. A downward trend was noted from the 14th through 16th before ramping up again from the 17th through the end of the month. Notable days were the 21st and 22nd with flash flooding in the Las Conchas fire burn scar. Heavy rain was reported over parts of Albuquerque on the 24th. Widespread rain fell on New Mexico from the 24th through the 26th. It was less active on the 27th then more significant rain fell over the final days of the month producing plenty of minor flooding.
