Dangerous Heat Continues

Dangerous heat continues with 700 mb temperatures over the Southwest at or near 20 C, which is very hot for that level. High temperatures at the airport for last five days, beginning Wednesday, June 14th, have been: 103, 106, 105, 105, and 108 F.

There is some chance for dry thunderstorms over the mountains near the New Mexico border the next couple of afternoons - not good given the large number of wildfires already burning. Image above is from Saturday afternoon and shows the smoke plume from the Frye Fire, which is burning on the north slopes of Mt. Graham, west of Safford. Image at bottom shows the plume, shifted a bit toward the north, yesterday afternoon.
