Record Heat On It's Way!


Hot Weather Coming!

Yesterday's weather in southeastern New Mexico can best be described as just nasty. Southwesterly winds gusted up to 43-69 mph across the local area. By early afternoon the sky was full of blowing dust. A few grass fires broke out in the Pecos Valley. The most serious fire was the Black Water Fire near Portales, which burned around 2,500 acres. Other more serious fires broke out in the Seminole and Midland areas. See this NewsWest 9 link for more details.

Today we will see gusty westerly to northwesterly winds at around 30-35 mph with our afternoon high temps ranging from 90-96. A Red Flag Warning is in effect for today for Critically Dangerous Fire Weather Conditions. Please avoid any type of outdoor activity that involves the use of sparks or flame. Any wild fire that may accidentally develop will have the potential to rapidly spread and grow in the strong winds.

Near record to record heat is forecast for Thursday into Sunday. Highs will range from the upper 90's to near 100 on Thursday, to 100-104 Friday and Saturday, and the upper 90's to near 100 on Sunday.
