The Heat Returns to New Mexico…

Today's Forecast Highs

Drier air is making a return to New Mexico and that means temperatures are going to be sky rocketing above average.   The metro will be in the 90s over the next few days while the southeast will be sitting in the triple digits.  So if you are going to be trying to enjoy the outdoors, you want to make sure you have the sunscreen and drink plenty of water while taking frequent breaks.   The above average temps also means the fire danger will be going up for parts of the state for the upcoming week.

Drying Out and Heating Up…

May 30th, 2014 at 8:45 pm by under Latest Posts, Weather

Some storms will continue for the next few hours this evening in Eastern New Mexico before we start to clear things out overnight.   There’s only a slight chance for a few isolated storms on Saturday.   They’ll be confined to the mountains and the northeast once again.   After Saturday, dry air really takes hold of New Mexico’s weather and we will start to heat things up.   Temperatures will be 10-15° above average for the beginning of the week.   Highs will top out in the 90s in Albuquerque and the triple digits in southeastern New Mexico by Sunday.
