Heat Wave Advisory Continues Today In NM - A Look At High Temps So Far.


  

As of 11 PM MDT last night the Dog Head Forest Fire (burning in the Manzano Mountains) southeast of Albuquerque had consumed some 17,000 acres and was 0% contained. 24 homes and 21 other buildings had also been lost to the fire. Notice in the visible satellite images above that smoke from the fire was carried eastward into Eastern New Mexico and West Texas, and then northward into Colorado and Western Kansas on Thursday.



Check out this Facebook video posted by Gary Gurule of a close slurry drop on the fire!

Heat Wave Continues.


Our current heat wave is forecast to continue today across much of Eastern, Southeastern, and Southern New Mexico as well as across parts of West Texas. In fact a Heat Wave Advisory remains in effect for the area. Today potentially could be the hottest day of this heat wave. We get somewhat of a break for the first couple of days next week with highs dropping down into the upper 90's then rebounding again to the century mark by Thursday into next weekend. Rain? Nope that's not in the cards for us. 





You know its going to be hot when Cloudcroft (8,750' MSL) is expecting to climb up to 83ºF and Ruidoso (7,000' MSL) is looking at 91ºF today. 




Our neighbors to the west in Arizona are looking at brutal temperatures this weekend into the middle of next week also.
