Oct. 21 - Continuing to warm up under the influence of a high pressure weather pattern. Yesterday's high at NMSU was 85, 8 degrees above the long term average. This morning's low was 44, just a degree below the long term average.

Today's AQI for the whole study area is for good air quality (green).
Particulates at the NMED Deming airport station were showing signs of pollutant build-up this morning as the winds were low and elevated PM10 (see plot below). The red line is the hourly averaged wind speed and the green line shows the hourly PM10 from the TEOM instrument. Yesterday's peak PM10 was likely caused by high winds.
