More Heat For SE NM.

Very little change concerning our local weather is forecast today into the weekend. Hot afternoon temperatures with readings near 100 are forecast for today into Friday. Temperatures are forecast to ramp up a few degrees by the weekend, with readings ranging from 100 - 105.

A few isolated t-storms are expected across the area this afternoon into early this evening. Most places will not see rainfall and the best chances will be over the mountains.



A cold front is forecast by the models to approach the area late Sunday or on Monday. If this front is able to push far enough to the south, and into the local area, we would see cooler temperatures with an increased chance for t-storms. 

Major Hurricane Irene.




Hurricane Irene has strengthened to a Category 3 Hurricane. As of 6 AM MDT, Irene was located about 335 miles SE of Nassau in the Bahamas. She had sustained winds of 115 mph with higher gusts near 135 mph. Her central pressure was down to 957 millibars, or 28.26 inches of mercury. Irene is moving off to the WNW at 9 mph.

 Irene is a large Hurricane, and is forecast to continue to strengthen as she moves over warmer waters during the next two days. Conditions are nearly ideal for Irene to continue to strengthen, and she has the potential to strengthen into a Category 4 Hurricane by around midnight tonight, possibly even sooner. She could have sustained winds near 125 mph and gusts near 155 mph.
