High temperatures are forecast to be around 102 - 105 Friday, Saturday, and Sunday across the Pecos Valley, and surrounding areas of SE NM. Overnight low temperatures are forecast to range from 72 - 80

Extremely hot (possibly breaking records daily, and maybe even some all-time monthly readings as well) temperatures are forecast next Monday - Wednesday in the area. 

This afternoons forecast package from the Midland NWS Office has Carlsbad's high temperature on Monday at 110, Tuesday 111, and Wednesday 109. Similar readings are forecast for Roswell-Artesia-Hobbs, although they will likely be a few degrees cooler than Carlsbad, but not by much. 

Please take the necessary precautionary measures to protect yourself, your loved ones, and pets from the heat. The very young and elderly will be particularly susceptible to heat stress and heat stroke during this event.  For more information please visit this link- Heat Advisory.
