Yep, it looks like in ABQ and El Paso (and thus I am assuming Alamo) a massive cooldown will be rolling through after one sort of hot day left tomorrow.

I saw on the news this AM that Phoenix was 110-ish yesterday and today and by Thursday will be in the 70s. Thus, that air will make its way east too to provide a cooldown for you lucky sons of guns that get to be living there right now!!
Massive cooldown? Oh I wish....Weather.com for Alamo starting Wednesday (we have not hit the projected high of 100 yet here today, but we are on our way. It just got to 97 (dayum, I hate this).....I lust after 70 and below temperatures, but we are not likely to see those again anytime soon:

93/62 80/52 80/51 84/53 89/60 90/58 91/61

We obviously have very different ideas of what "sort of hot" means, LOL!!!! I am going to enjoy the two 80 degree days, though....

Boy, I hope this is not the norm. If it is, I am not staying southern New Mexico once I don't have to drive back to TX.....!!!!!!

Having to live in Phoenix's climate would be like living in hell, or next door to it.......

I'm loving these temps!! It is soooo nice to enjoy 93 degrees when there is only 9% humidity. I keep on going outside to soak up the sunshine.

Oh puh-leeze... We LOVED heat down there! We got back to Seattle today to gray skies and a balmy 56 degrees. We are shivering in our Tevas & shorts we wore home from wonderfully warm & sunny Albuquerque!!!

Soon as I find our camera cable I'll post some pics from our trip... We loved it, had a fabulous time! Awesome food (so much for the weight we lost before we went - we found every pound!!), even better weather! Heavenly.

Let's see, just need the house to sell here and find a couple of jobs down there and we'll be set. Anyone need a mechanical engineer and/or a project manager/technical trainer?!?!?

Hey EP - Question for you re your favorite topic, weather in Alb.

Does the rain/storms come from the West or the East? We assume the east since the Eastside gets more moisture... but maybe it comes from the west, collects over the mountains and then lets go on the east?

See for us, the western side of the mountains (Cascades) are wetter than the eastside... WAAAYYY wetter.

Storms almost always move West to East. They usually accumulate in the Pacific and make their way over us. We hardly ever get moisture from the gulf, but it does happen occassionally. The mountains get more moisture simply because of altitude.
