Record Highs To Continue Tuesday

A chance of showers and thunderstorms will be possible Thursday. A record high was reached this afternoon. The record for today is 89 set in 1934, and we are already at 90 and climbing, so an old record will fall. The heat will stay with us tomorrow with another record high expected before a weak cold front enters the area dropping temperatures back just a little Wednesday.
Thursday will be interesting as an upper level low moves into the western US near the Four Corners region. Moisture will return back west into southeastern New Mexico and the Davis Mountains increasing instability. A line of storms will develop along a Pacific front and push east across the area Thursday afternoon/evening. We will also see strong southerly winds ahead of the front, with strong west winds as the front passes through the area. Some storms should become severe.
The Pacific front will rapidly push east followed by a reinforcing push of cooler Canadian air Friday night. This will keep temperatures closer to normal for the end of the work week into the beginning of the weekend.
