Black-Eyed Susans Near Elk, NM.
Near Record Highs Today & Friday.
Near record to record heat is forecast locally today into the weekend. Highs today and Saturday will be near 100º. Highs on Sunday are forecast to be in the mid to upper 90's. These temps will be some 8º to 12º above normal.
Wildfire smoke emanating from the Pacific Northwest has circulated clockwise around a mid-upper level ridge of high pressure centered over north-central New Mexico this morning. This will continue into this evening. So hazy skies with an opportunity for a firey sunset this evening.
For now, the stout mid-upper level ridge of high pressure has shut off our monsoonal flow from the south. Dry conditions are forecast today into next week.
