Record High Saturday but what about your Sunday?
Warm Sunny Saturday as El Paso reached a Record high of 88 degrees today set back in 1967! We still have the possibility to hit the record high for Sunday is 88º set back in 1971.
Nice clear skies are expected to remain through the rest of your weekend.
The center of a strong ridge of high pressure will park right over southern New Mexico producing near record high temperatures for El Paso this weekend. High clouds will start to deepen tomorrow which may keep our temperatures a few degrees below what we saw today.
Rain chances will return to The Borderland by the start of your work week as an upper wave starts to push clouds into the Borderland Sunday evening. This system will carry in just enough moisture to produce a few isolated thunderstorms late Monday evening. The cloud cover and slightly cooler air will drop our afternoon high temperatures into the upper 70's in both El Paso and Las Cruces.
The return of nice dry weather will return by Tuesday as the temperatures will remain in the 80's for the remainder of this lovely Spring week ahead!
Breezy/Windy conditions will be making a return towards the end of the week as an upper wave followed by a Pacific cold front with kick up the winds and perhaps a little Borderland dust both Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.
