May 24 - Dust alert day

Another windy day for our region. Highest winds are likely along the I-10 corridor as the RUC 6 pm forecast below shows. The NWS forecast indicates winds in the 18 to 25 mph range with gusts to 45 mph.
The AQI shows both moderate (yellow) air quality over Dona Ana County due to ozone and Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (orange) over west Texas due to windblown dust PM10.
We saw high hourly PM10 at several sites due to windblown dust. Highest concentrations were observed at the Sunland Park City Yard (SPCY) and at the Las Cruces Holman Road station.
