The National Weather Service has issued heat alerts for the area for the weekend.

The advisory is in effect from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. for Chaves and De Baca counties for Saturday, when afternoon temperatures are expected to reach between 104 and 110 degrees. It continues for Sunday afternoon, as well.

The National Weather Service also indicated that record-high temperatures are expected to continue in this area for early next week.

To avoid possible health problems, people are advised to drink plenty of fluids, stay in air-conditioned rooms, stay out of the sun, and check on relatives and neighbors. Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances.

If people must be outside, they need to be aware of the signs of heat exhaustion or heat stroke, wear lightweight and loose-fitting clothing, and schedule frequent rest breaks in shaded or air-conditioned environments.
