We broke the record high of 88 yesterday during the early afternoon hours, we reached 92°. Upper level low to our west will be pushing across the 4-corners region today, then our region tomorrow. We don't have a good amount of moisture for rain from this system, but to our east there will be a chance for showers and storms. A high risk for severe storms with large hail and significant tornadoes in the mid-west and extending into the south Saturday. Here is Storm Prediction Centers outlook for Saturday.
What this system brings us is strong wind and cooler temperatures for the weekend. Today the southwest wind kicks up to 20-30mph with gusts in the 35-40mph range. Partly sunny with the high near 81.
TONIGHT: Cold front move across our area this evening keeping the wind breezy 15-25mph. Cloud cover will break apart and clearing likely before sunrise, low near 42.
WEEKEND: As the low tightens Saturday that will keep us with a strong west-northwest wind 20-30mph that looks to drop by the evening hours. Highs dropping to below average near 66 with a sunny sky Saturday. High clouds move in Sunday with highs climbing a few degrees to the low 70s.
NEXT WEEK: Temperatures look to stay nice in the lower to mid 70s with low in the 40s. Our next upper level low moves across our area Monday. This will bring the strong wind back then drops to a light breeze the rest of the week. Something we will continue to watch is the chance for showers and storms Monday. For now the better chance is in our far eastern counties where better moisture will be.
Have a great Friday and weekend. Matt with the next updated forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
