Jan. 9 -

Nice rain event in Dona Ana and El Paso counties. Most locations received more than an inch or rain with the highest at 1.08 inch. Below are this morning's observations at our NWS Cooperative weather station. I'll grab more station data when I get time today.

                 Yesterday           Today
Station       High(F) Normal  Low(F)  Normal  Record Low Precip
NMSU            60      56     30      26      8 (1964)  0.67"

Not surprising the AQI forecast for today is in the good range due to the rain wash out effects.
2pm update: Just got back from El Paso/Sunland Park and noticed the abrupt change in weather between there and Las Cruces.  Sunny in Las Cruces but still lots of cloud cover in El Paso made it feel like it was going to rain again.  I am going to postpone filter sampling at SPCY still another day.

A low intensity, low wind event unfolded at the SPCY station tonight.
