My daughter Corbin will be graduating from Coronado High School next Tuesday, so we threw her a little graduation party (pics below). A high percentage of El Pasoans are going to graduation parties this week. Congratulations to the Class of 2022, who achieved success in spite of a pandemic. It’s a sentimental time. My wife and all three children are Coronado HS grads… truly, a page turned in the history book of our lives. Here’s your hot forecast for all those celebrations this week…

TONIGHT:  We’ll see partly cloudy skies through the night as the moderately gusty winds slowly die down.  The west winds will range from 10-30 mph with the strongest gusts on the east slopes of the mountains.  The low will be 70.
FORECAST:   Sunday will be mostly sunny with hot, dry, moderately gusty winds and a high of 100.  The west winds will range from 10-35 mph, enough to call windy, but not strong enough to produce blowing dust.  Get ready for hot temperatures in the workweek ahead as a well-defined ridge of high-pressure builds up over northern Mexico.  Monday will be sunny, breezy, and 102.  Tuesday will be sunny, breezy, and 103.  High pressure will reach a maximum on Wednesday raising the high to 105.  On Thursday, expect a high of 102 with scattered late-day t-storms.  Friday will be partly cloudy and 101 with a chance of late-day t-storms.  High pressure begins to reassert itself starting Saturday as temperatures go up.  Saturday will be partly cloudy with a high of 104.  Sunday will be mostly sunny and breezy with a high of 105.
