Drought is expanding its grip on New Mexico and parts of the southwest once again thanks to a stretch of warm, dry weather.

Forecasters with the National Weather Service in Albuquerque say Friday marks the 50th consecutive day without measurable rain in the metro. They point out that many parts of the state are seeing unusually warm temperatures that are contributing to the problem.
