Las Cruces may reach three figures this weekend

LAS CRUISES – Southern New Mexico may record its first triple-digit temperature over the weekend as the weather warms up over the next few days.

According to the National Weather Service, pressure rises over the area resulting in warmer temperatures and calming winds.

Sunday’s forecast expects temperatures to reach 99 degrees or higher in southern Las Cruces, making it the best day to hit the 100. Doña Ana County areas near Rio Grande may also experience higher temperatures.

If the area reaches 100 degrees or higher, it will be the first recorded three-digit weather day of 2022 — about a month earlier than last year.

The first three-digit day recorded in Las Cruces last year was June 10 at New Mexico State University, meteorologist Eleanor Dewitter of the NWS in Santa Teresa said.
