Calm and pleasant conditions are expected in the forecast for today, but we will see that change starting tomorrow.
For today we will see warm and above average temperatures as forecast highs are 5°-10° above average across the borderland. Temperatures will be in the 80s for today and even warmer tomorrow.
Winds will be calm throughout the day as they come from the northeast at 5-10 mph in the morning, shifting to the west in the afternoon. These westerly winds are one of the main contributing factors to these warmer conditions.
For tomorrow we will continue to see warm and even more above average temperatures as forecast highs will be in the 90s.
As of right now it looks like we will see a forecast high of 91° which would match our record high temperature of 91° that we reached in 1989.
Winds are expected to be breezy to low end windy tomorrow as well. As of right now it looks like we will see winds come from the southwest at 15-25 mph and gusts 30 mph. This means patchy blowing dust will be an issue in your afternoon commutes.
Our main wind event will come on Wednesday as we will see windy conditions. Winds are looking to come from the west at 35-40 mph and gusts 55 mph. This means that thick blowing dust could be an issue for some parts of the borderland Wednesday afternoon.
Cold air coming in with these winds will drop temperatures from the 90s on Tuesday to the mid 70s by Wednesday.
We will see our next storm system come into the forecast on Friday night into Saturday as it comes from the west.
As of right now this system will increase rain chances to 20%. And as we are likely to see widespread showers, there is a possibility of thunderstorms.
A backdoor cold front will come from our east during the arrival of this storm system, so temperatures will drop into the 60s by Saturday.
