ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — When the local meteorologist describes the weather with a simple yet emphatic “it’s hot,” it must be.
“We have a heat wave. It intensified Wednesday and into the weekend. It’s going to be hot,” said Dwight Koehn, a hydrometerological technician with the National Weather Service in Albuquerque.
And not much relief is in sight.
“New records are likely, and moisture is limited,” Koehn said. “It will be hot for a few more weeks until we get the monsoon established.”
But that won’t be as early as initially predicted.
