Just As Hot Today If Not Hotter - More Records In Danger Of Falling Today Into Monday.

See My Blog Post From Thursday-



     Roswell topped out at 111º again yesterday for the second day in a row. Thursday's high at the Airport of 111º beat the previous daily record of 107º in 1951. Friday's high of 111º beat the previous daily record of 108º in 2016. Thursday's and Friday's record high of 111º also ties the all-time July record high set on July 27, 1995.

     As of noon MDT today (Saturday) the Roswell Industrial Air Center Airport ASOS was reporting a temperature of 107º. This is two degrees higher than at the same time on Friday. So it's not out of the question at all for Roswell to potentially break their July all-time record high this afternoon. 

     Forecast high temperatures this afternoon are in the 106º to 111º range locally. Forecast highs for Sunday are similar to today's highs. Monday is forecast to be the hottest day of this record heatwave with highs in the 108º to 112º range across the Southeastern Plains.

     The forecast models have been coming in a couple of degrees too low for the past two days so don't be surprised to see some locations exceed their forecast high temperatures today, Sunday, and Monday. On Monday I still think we may see a few stations report high temperatures in the 112º to 115º range.
