Feb. 28 - We're on a warming trend after the last storm. Today's low at NMSU was 27F.

The NAAPS model shows our dust from yesterday is making its way east over Texas at the surface (lower left panel). aloft the dust is drifting across central US in the upper left panel. There's also a big Asian dust cloud over Alaska and the eastern Pacific Ocean showing up as the green blob in the upper left panel.
At least at the SPCY station we see a low wind high PM event in the evening. It is a weak event with peak PM10 in the range of 160 µg/m3.

The EPA AQI forecast for the region on Tuesday is for good air quality

The forecast for winds on Thursday look unimpressive so far. I don't see much dust coming out of that storm.
