...HAZARDOUS HEAT AGAIN FRIDAY ACROSS WEST AND SOUTHWEST AREAS...

.A strong high pressure system centered over southern Arizona
will drift south Friday. Temperature readings will begin to trend
downward across northern and eastern areas on Friday as a strong
back door cold front banks up against the east slopes of the
central mountain chain. However, central and western areas along
and south of Interstate 40 will have to endure one more day of
hazardous heat. The back door cold front will move over western
New Mexico Friday night and the upper high will sag further south
resulting in cooler temperatures and widespread showers and
thunderstorms this weekend.
