ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — This weekend was a hot one and Monday is going to be more of the same before a cooldown comes later this week.

Temperatures will be in the upper-90s to low-100s throughout the state. The Albuquerque metro will see highs varying between 96 and 101 degrees while other places, such as southern New Mexico, could get as high as 108 degrees Monday.

Heat advisories are posted in southern New Mexico and, across the state, red flag warnings are posted amid the ongoing hot, dry conditions.

Wind alerts are also posted in western parts of the state, near Gallup, Window Rock and Grants, where the Cerro Bandera Fire is continuing to burn. Smoke may linger from that fire and from a fire burning near Flagstaff.

Some storm chances are coming this weekend and may usher in our monsoon season. Brett Luna takes a look at it in his full forecast.
