ABC-7 FIRST ALERT: Record-breaking heat today, hot weekend ahead

Our ABC-7 First Alert continues in the Borderland because of the hot conditions! We broke our daily record high of 106 which was set back in 1980. We topped out at 109 today! This also makes today the hottest day of the year.

Likewise, it was the hottest day of the year so far for Las Cruces, those in the Mesilla Valley saw a high of 108! Whew...

An Excessive Heat Warning remains in effect for the Rio Grande Valley area of El Paso and Hudspeth Counties. A Heat Advisory also remains in place for Southern New Mexico, this includes Las Cruces.

These hot conditions will last through the weekend, but a cool down is in store for the upcoming work week.

I would advise everyone to hydrate, take breaks in the air conditioning and shade, and check on your neighbors. It is HOT!
