Dec. 31 - A cold start to the day with a low of 27F at NMSU Coop site, 25F at the Las Cruces Airport, 33F at the EL Paso Airport, and 16F at the Deming Airport.  Snow can be seen at the higher elevations. Here is a photo of Organ Mountains at Dripping Springs this morning.
We could get a little more precipitation out of this storm based on the forecasts. The QPF map shows some precip could fall in southern Hidalgo and in Grant County.
Air quality is in the good range this morning. The core site in Las Cruces was showing hourly PM10 concentrations in the 10 µg/m3 range.
At the end of the day air quality remained good even with fireworks. Here is the NMED Sunland Park City Yard station PM10 and PM2.5.
