After ushering in the first 100° day of the year at Reid International Airport on Thursday, temperatures are dropping 15 to 20 degrees on Friday.

Along with the heat, stronger wind has picked up with gusts in the 30-40 mph range. A Red Flag Warning is in effect through 10 p.m. tonight due to the heightened fire danger. That wind is helping push temperatures well into the triple-digits this afternoon.

Cooler air arrives on Friday, bringing our high temperatures down into the mid 80s. It will remain breezy on Friday with gusts in the 20-30 mph range. Temperatures remain in the upper 80s and low 90s this weekend. Saturday tops out at 84° with Sunday at 92°. We’ll see a slight breeze on Sunday with the wind in the 10-20 mph range.

We’ll hold on to the 90s Monday and Tuesday before triple-digits return again by the middle of next week.
