A short break from the heat today, but more record high temperatures are in store for most of New Mexico as the hot weather sticks around into next week.
A cold front has brought down temperatures over 20° today across parts of eastern New Mexico and the Rio Grande Valley. This break from the heat is short lived though as record high temperatures start to return again tomorrow. Scattered cloud cover will develop Thursday afternoon, along with some virga showers that may bring sporadic and gusty winds later in the day.
This record heat will stick around into the weekend for many. Albuquerque will likely see its earliest 90° day in recorded history by Friday or Saturday.
The heat now looks to continue all the way into the beginning and middle of next week as it looks to be a very warm start to the month of May.
