Record Heat Scorches the Borderland: When will we see relief?

Wednesday we saw temperatures climb to 100 in El Paso, smashing the old record of 97. Today we were just a degree shy of the record at 97 degrees. Heat like this is rarely stays around long this late in the summer, and it looks like relief is on the way.

The upper level ridge of high pressure that has been providing us with hot, dry weather will begin to move east on Friday. As a result, temperatures will drop a few degrees and moisture will increase. It doesn’t look like we’ll see any widespread rain this weekend, but scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms will be possible with temperatures in the upper 80s and low 90s.

For Monday and Tuesday we are tracking what will be the remnants of Norma. Right now the major weather models are disagreeing on where Norma will go after nearing the Baja peninsula. However, there is a possibility that we could see widespread rain if Norma tracks inland.

It’s still too early to tell if Norma’s remnants will make it here for early next week. Make sure to download the ABC-7 StormTRACK Weather APP for all the latest updates.
