Northeast wind flow pattern today brings in wildfire smoke to populated areas.
Below is the RUC 6 pm winds showing the wind pattern this evening.
At 11 pm, I still smell smoke but not as strong. Winds are from the east with the forecast calling for southeast winds tomorrow. Another look at the Abrams Fire from the Mesowest website showing the GeoMAC fire perimeter with smoke outline. As the nocturnal mixed layer sets in we'll see lingering smoke trapped in the Mesilla Valley in the morning.
Tomorrow's forecast shows southeast winds to blow the smoke away toward the northwest.
