Oct. 24 - We're still in a period of above average temperatures for this time of year but that's about to change.
   Yesterday           Today
High(F)  Normal     Low(F)  Normal
 84        75        46       43

The upper level high that has been giving us nice weather has shifted slightly to our east and we're getting some moisture from the Pacific Ocean. We had some cloud cover today and the beautiful sunset.
I don't expect much precipitation from this plume of moisture and the QPF is showing a little to our north over the Gila Wilderness during the next 24-hours.
The AQI forecast for today shows a moderate air quality over the Dona Ana county. Peak AQI is 55 and is due to ozone.
Yesterday a low wind event occurred at the Sunland Park and  Anthony stations. At 5 pm peak hourly PM10 reached 310 µg./m3 while PM2.5 peaked at 24 µg/m3.
