Drier and Hotter This Weekend

July 18th, 2014 at 12:24 pm by under Weather

After seeing plenty of rainfall, the week will end rather quietly. As high pressure moves over the state today and into the weekend, storm coverage will not be as good. Some moisture will still manage to sneak under the high. However, storm coverage will be limited to primarily the high terrain, with isolated storms elsewhere.

The big story over the weekend and early next week will be the heat. Afternoon highs will be well above average. Afternoon highs from Farmington to Albuquerque will reach the mid 90s. Across much of the south and east highs will reach the upper 90s to near 100°. If you want relief from the heat, head to the Northern Mountains. Areas like Angel Fire and Red River will remain in the 70s through the weekend and early next week.

Drier air works into western New Mexico today and continues to work east this weekend.
