ABQ hits 100, but relief in sight

Albuquerque hit 100 degrees on Friday, but relief is in sight.

A cold front will bring cooler weather early next week to the Albuquerque metro area, with a forecast high temperature of 87 on Monday and 88 on Tuesday.

Friday’s high tied a record July 19 high of 100 in 2010, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Climatic Data Center. Santa Fe reached a high of 97.

Today’s high in Albuquerque is forecast to be 98.

The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook for the north and central areas of New Mexico because of this weekend’s near-record heat. The outlook advises residents to drink lots of water and take frequent breaks if working outdoors.

Eastern portions of the state are under a NWS heat advisory. On Thursday, Roswell temperatures reached a high of 106 and Tucumcari hit 107. Both areas will cool to the high 80s and low 90s next week because of a cold front and scattered thunderstorms.

NOAA reported that last month was the hottest June on record for the globe.
