New Mexico.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Very hot temperatures are in store this afternoon. Triple digit heat

105 around Roswell and Tucumcari. Remember to stay hydrated and take
frequent breaks if working outdoors.

A few storms are expected over the southwest and south central
mountains this afternoon and early evening. Locally heavy rain is
possible due to slow storm motions.

Hot temperatures are expected to persist through Saturday. Triple
digit heat is likely for portions of the plains as well as the Rio
Grande Valley. Drink water, check on the elderly, and take plenty of
breaks in the shade.

to localized areas of flash flooding, especially over and near
recent burn scars.


Spotter activation is not anticipated today.
