ABC-7 StormTRACK weather: Near record heat for the start of the week

Happy Saturday everyone! If you’re reading this around 6 p.m., you still have time to get to the Tequila, Tacos, and Cerveza Festival in Las Cruces happening tonight. It will last until 11 p.m. tonight. If you’re going, or prefer to stay home…temperatures will be warm for the next few hours – not dropping until the upper 80s by 9pm tonight.

If you don’t like the heat, you’re not going to like this week’s forecast! Triple digit numbers are expected through the middle of next week, and we could even reach or break a record next week on Tuesday. The record has been 105 degrees since 2018, and as of today I expect a high of 104 degrees that day. Be super careful in the heat this week.

And the rain!? We will see an increased chance of rain by the middle of next week…but they are not yet favorable for widespread rain. Looks like more mountain thunderstorms with a chance of a few storms moving into the lowlands next week. We will keep you posted. Stay calm!
