Record heat for parts of New Mexico this afternoon and more hot weather is ahead for Sunday. High temperatures will once again be hotter than average for Sunday with mostly sunny skies.
The hot, dry and breezy conditions are likely to continue into Monday. Red Flag Warnings are up for most of New Mexico this weekend and that means you do not want to do any outdoor burning with the dry, hot weather continuing.
The heat will continue through Monday before a cold front will drop temperatures by a few degrees. So instead of feeling the 90s and triple digits, temperatures will fall back into the 80s in central New Mexico with the 90s returning to most of southern New Mexico to begin the week.
New Mexico looks to stay dry for most of the upcoming week. After the brief cool down to start this week, temperatures will heat back up into the 90s and triple digits by week’s end.
