Albuquerque and most of New Mexico are bracing for a heat wave later this week, with triple-digit temperatures expected to come close to breaking July records.
Sharon Sullivan, meteorologist for the National Weather Service Albuquerque office, said the heat wave will arrive Thursday, and precipitation chances will dwindle as the week goes on.
“If you need to walk your dog or work in the garden, make sure to avoid that midday heat, and try to get those tasks done earlier in the day,” Sullivan said. “Stay hydrated if you do have to be outdoors.”
