ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Summer may finally be on its way to New Mexico.
For the first time this year, a high temperature of at least 90 degrees was reached at the Albuquerque International Sunport on Friday. That is the latest that has happened since 1999, according to the National Weather Service in Albuquerque. And the temperature soared near 100 degrees in the usual hot spot of the state in Roswell.
Most state residents were given a reprieve the last couple of days as a backdoor cold front again brought unseasonably low temperatures and wind gusts of up to 50 miles per hour. The temperatures fell back into the mid-70s in the Albuquerque area.
