Hot and Dry Start to the Week

September 1st, 2014 at 5:06 pm by under Weather

The sunny skies and hot temperatures will continue as you go back to work Tuesday. Afternoon highs will run 5° – 15° above average Tuesday afternoon. Albuquerque will hit the low 90s, while the south continues to flirt with triple digit heat.

The area of high pressure sitting over the state now will shift east by the end of the week. That will allow for modest moisture flow from the south, leading to scattered afternoon storms by Thursday and Friday. Over the weekend, additional moisture and lift will arrive in the northeast courtesy of a back door cold front.

As moisture returns to the state, temperatures will come back down. Albuquerque will return to the low 80s by the end of the weekend and start of next week. The southeast will drop back to the upper 80s!

Hot and dry weather will continue through at least midweek.

Quiet Weather Through Holiday Weekend

The storm system that brought showers and storms Tuesday and Wednesday is now leaving Colorado. Behind it, drier air is setting up for the next several days. Expect lots of sunshine with temperatures still on the cooler side Friday afternoon.

Saturday remains quiet, but temperatures slowly start to warm through the weekend. By Sunday and Labor Day Monday, afternoon highs in Albuquerque will reach the low 90s. Meanwhile, the southeast will warm into the upper 90s. A few locations could push 100°!

Another storm will pass even farther to our north during the day Sunday. Showers are unlikely across most of the state. However, winds will be elevated during the day Sunday, making for a breezy afternoon.
