Chris’ Saturday Evening Forecast

Record heat again in Albuquerque with some storms in parts of the metro today.   The Albuquerque Sunport hit 98° which tied the record high temperature that was set back in 1911.  Farmington also broke a record today by topping out at 97°. The storms will be ending in Albuquerque over the next few hours but then the canyon winds will be kicking up out of the east gusting as high as 30 mph tonight.  The heat will continue for Sunday along with the chance for more storms.   The storms will first fire around the mountains and then drift into the valley locations.   Central and Eastern New Mexico will be favored for most of the storms.   By Monday, storm chances will be limited to far northern New Mexico.   Some of the storms could be on the strong side in the northeast while the rest of us start to dry out and the heat will continue for the rest of the state.   By Wednesday, a cold front will drop our temperatures back to more seasonable highs for at least a day.   Then we heat back up by the end of the week.  Rain chances look to be limited for the next week after this Monday. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
