Friday Weather on the go: Breezy and warm today, Fire Weather Watch and windy tomorrow


Warm and dry conditions will increase today and especially tomorrow across the borderland.

Today will be warmer than yesterday and above average. Forecast highs will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s.

Winds will be breezy as they come from the east northeast at 10-15 mph and gusts 20+ mph. 

A Fire Weather Watch will go into effect on Saturday from 2 p.m. until 9 p.m. This means we will see low humidity levels, strong winds, and warm conditions. 

Winds will come from the west southwest at 20-30 mph and gusts 40 mph. As of right now it looks like our peak wind speed is at 28 mph, but if we do reach 30 mph we could see a Wind Advisory go into effect.

Because of this Watch we are discouraging any outdoor burning for Saturday as the winds and dry conditions can make fires spread easily.

We will also see near 90° temperatures on Saturday, meaning we will be almost 10° above average.

Easter Sunday will be breezy as winds come from the west at 10-20 mph, and gusts of 30 mph will come Sunday night. Your forecast high is 84° and forecast low is 58°.

A backdoor cold front coming from the east will start a cooling trend that will drop temperatures to the low 80s by Tuesday and upper 70s by Wednesday.

Our next storm system will also come in on Tuesday and Wednesday as we will see rain and thunderstorm chances increase to 10%. 

These showers and possible thunderstorms look to have a low impact as there will not be a lot of moisture associated with this storm system.
