High pressure brings back the 100º heat for the weekend!
An upper level ridge of high pressure will heat the borderland into the triple digits both Saturday and Sunday. Most of the storms will remain over the area mountains and towards the Arizona border. The skies will have some evening clouds, otherwise mostly fair overnight with a nice 74º sunrise low. The skies will turn partly cloudy Saturday, with light winds and a high of 101º.
The river of monsoon moisture will swing back over us bringing helping our rain chances next week.
A Cool front will slide in Thursday to drop high temperatures closer to our normal mid 90's with slightly enhanced rain rain chances by the end of next week.
I will have your complete forecast tonight at 5, 6, 6:30 & 10 P.M.. on NewsChannel 9.
