Scattered showers moving through this evening

Weather Video Forecast

NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – We’ve already seen one of the hottest days of 2021 so far. 92 degrees was our official high temperature in Albuquerque. Now we’re seeing widespread light showers and weak storms across most of the state. Very light rainfall amounts are expected with these showers through midnight. We hold on to the moisture through Sunday, with the storm threat shifting to eastern New Mexico. Some of those storms could be stronger near Texas.



Otherwise, our next big story turns to the heat which is continuing to build and intensify through next week. We’ll dry out Monday with the exception of far northeastern NM. High temps will approach and break the 100 degree mark across Roswell and Las Cruces. Meanwhile, widespread low to mid 90s are expected through the metro and other parts of the state with lots of sunshine for the week. Those air conditioners will have a busy week!
