Mostly sunny skies will hold through the weekend with record heat on tap all across New Mexico. Highs will range from 15° above average in the west to 35°. Here in the metro area, our record high for the date is 70° and our forecast high is 73°. Temps across the southeast will be even more our of whack. Highs in Roswell and Carlsbad will be in the mid-80s.
Take a look at how far above average temps will be this weekend.
As far as our next storm chance goes, don’t get too excited. I think we will be well into March before we get any shot at a real storm.
