It was a scorcher across New Mexico.
The Albuquerque Sunport hit 100 degrees for the first time in 2014 and temperatures hit above 100 across southern New Mexico.
Carlsbad saw temperatures reach 108 degrees, Alamogordo and Hobbs each experienced 102 degrees and Roswell reached 105.
Relief could be on the way as scattered thunderstorms could hit parts of the state, including Albuquerque.
The record high in Albuquerque is 107 degrees, set in 1994 according to the National Weather Service.
Last year’s high of 105 degrees was recorded on June 27, 2013.
Today is the 52nd time temperatures have reached 100 degrees at the Sunport since 1992. However, this heat spell is nothing compared the nine-day stretch of June 22-30 in 1980.
According to the National Weather Service, it was 100 degrees or more in Albuquerque each day during that stretch.
