Dec. 14 -

The big story is the precipitation across the region. Below shows the estimated rainfall total for the last 24-hours from the NWS Ridge2 product.

Below are this morning's observation at the NMSU weather station.
   Yesterday           Today
High(F)  Normal     Low(F)  Normal  Record Low
 54        58        40      28      12 (1985)

We had 0.22 inches of precip over the last 24-hours. So far at NMSU we had 0.85 inches of precip this month. Our 30-year average (1980-2010) is 0.72 inches.

Another storm system is on the way to bring in more precipitation to the border area. The 4 and 5 day NOAA QPF is showing precipitation across most of New Mexico.
Not surprising, the EPA AQI forecast is showing good air quality over the border region for today.
