Sunny And Hot Conditions Continue 5/17/13
Friday Weather Update
Greg Morgan – Chief Meteorologist
A dry and hot day is in store for the area today! Highs will top out at or above 100 for all but the mountains and a few locations in northern Eddy and Lea County in New Mexico. Skies will be sunny for most of the day. A few clouds will drift into the area this evening.
Hot conditions will continue through the weekend and early next week. Expect a few passing clouds over the next few days but no rain. Winds will be out of the west or southwest through early next week.
A dry forecast is expected through at least Wednesday of next week. Thereafter, a large upper level trough will set up over the western United States and low level moisture will return to the area in response. While it’s a little early to get excited, the chance of rain does look to increase by Memorial Day Weekend.
