Albuquerque’s high temperatures will go from the 80s on Tuesday to the 90s on Wednesday, while Las Vegas will see triple-digits.

In parts of Arizona, the temperature on Wednesday could reach 109 degrees and hit 112 the following day.

    1. What hilarious is there’s no mention of global warming in the article yet just the mere mention of high temperatures sets you off. Damn, Alberto, you are a snow flake!

  1. Tell the farmers in the Texas Panhandle who have lost their farms due to climate change. What climate change hasn’t done to destroy their livlihoods, the orange buffoon did in his trade war with China. Climste change deniers remind me of the kind of people who used to deny evolution years ago. Sad sad people.

    1. Yup. I’ll be in mine next week drinking Miller Lite and blended Scotch whiskey. BTW – Contrary to what that moron markturner says it is nice knowing a good chlorine or bromine level kills viruses not just bacteria. I bet he doesn’t even read the labels on Lysol or Clorox disinfecting wipes. Kills 99.9% of all viruses and bacteria.
