April 27

We had a brief break in the winds. Winds were from the northwest from around 10 to 15 mph.

Today's AQI forecast shows an area of moderate air quality due to ozone over parts of Dona Ana and Luna County.

A few wildfires are active in our region. The Abrams fire is at 7,400 acres and 40 percent contained. The fire has moved to the west slopes of Organs and is visible to Las Cruces. Flames can be seen in the evening from town.
Not sure what fire that is with a smoke plume over Socorro and northern Sierra county. The fire is southeast of Quemado. I was driving south through I-25 this afternoon and smoke is visible and can smell it south of San Antonio. This was a photo looking west at an exit south of San Antonio at 6:30 pm.
Friday may bring higher winds but not as intense as Monday's.
