April 11

A cool start in Las Cruces with a low of 39F. Our normal low for this day is 43. The Las Cruces airport's low was 36F.

The AQI forecast for today shows an area of moderate air quality over Dona Ana County. This is due to ozone with an AQI of 55.

One thing I'm looking is the smoke from from Texas and Mexico today. We'll be seeing a southeast wind today which might transport some lingering smoke into our region late in the day. Below is the our RUC forecast for this afternoon at 6 pm.
Hysplit is showing a possibility that some smoke could be transported over Otero and eastern Dona Ana County at night.The red trajectory was generated at 21 UTC at the fire and drifts into the Organ Mtns around midnight.
