Oct. 26 - Sufficient moisture in the atmosphere might give a few areas some precipitation today.

Temperatures continue to be above average with this morning's low 9 degrees above the long term average.
   Yesterday           Today
High(F)  Normal     Low(F)  Normal
 83        75        51       42
Yesterday was warm but not enough for a record. The record high was 86 back in 1950.

AQI forecast shows a small area of moderate air quality in El Paso county for today due to PM10.
By the afternoon I can see a few patches of precipitation toward the west.
Snow is falling up in Taos. Below is an image from the Taos Ski Valley webcam today.
Some blowing dust can be seen at the Anthony station this afternoon. Winds are not high with gusts up to 8 m/s but looks like enough for dust with peak hourly PM10 of 137 µg/m3.
A couple of brief rain showers blew through Las Cruces at 7 and again at 8:20 pm tonight. Just enough rain to wet the sidewalks and not much more. Looks like a little rain in Deming as well. Below is a radar reflectivity map from College of Dupage at 6:05pm.
