A heat advisory is issued for El Paso taking effect Tuesday.

Afternoon highs are expected to reach at or above 105° with overnight lows at or above 75°.

El Paso fits these parameters through Wednesday night, so we could see a high advisory last for a couple of days.

In fact, we could even see record highs these next few days.

Record heat expected this week.

Moisture begins to move back into the area, dropping afternoon highs a couple of degrees, taking us out of the Heat Advisory, but keeping El Paso in the triple digits.
