WEDNESDAY: A quiet start to the day with morning temperatures in the 50s, 60s and 70s under a clear sky. High pressure sitting overhead will keep the state dry, hot and sunny for yet another day. Winds will be light out of the west, ranging between 5-15mph. Afternoon temperature will continue to soar well above average with most topping out in the 80s, 90s and 100s. Near record breaking heat will take over the Eastern Plains yet again – a HEAT ADVISORY is in effect for far eastern NM (counties lining the TX/NM stateline) beginning 12PM due to temperatures topping out between 100°-108°.
THURSDAY: Another scorcher as afternoon highs return to the 80s, 90s and triple digits. A mostly sunny sky will blanket the state with a bit more cloud cover (and a shot at a few spot storms!) over the far Northeastern Plains as a cold front edges in. As this front pushes further into the state, winds will pick up – expect a gusty east canyon wind to blow across the Albuquerque-metro area beginning Thursday night and continuing into Friday.
FRIDAY: The mentioned front will bring a slight cool off to areas along and east of the Central Mountains, however, temperatures will likely hit 100° or better in many areas (taking a slight edge off the heat, but not squashing it completely.) A few isolated storms are still possible across eastern NM, although, most of us will stay dry.
