Listen to the weather

Get ready for another humid day. It’s still going to be hot and chances of rain are a little bit higher today. Humidity is hard to deal with, but there are some ways to cool off.

One easy and free way is to just breathe differently. In a yoga class at UNM, I learned yoga practitioners work to master a breathing technique that can bring down body temperature in minutes. Just curl your tongue and focus on inhaling through your mouth. Exhale through your nose fully and repeat.

It may seem far-fetched, but what have you got to lose?

A flood watch is out for the increased potential for today’s crop of storms to produce flash-flooding on recent burn scars. Storms will favor western and central NM, while the eastern plains remain mostly dry and hot,” Albuquerque National Weather Service Meteorologist Randall Herdgert said.


Here’s today’s forecast:

There will be scattered showers and thunderstorms between 3 p.m. and 3 a.m. The high will be around 92 and a low around 67. Chance of precipitation is 50%. New rainfall amounts to less than a tenth of an inch, except higher amounts possible during thunderstorms.
