Another warm day but some of us got a little relief from the heat with a brief afternoon thunderstorm. Here in Las Cruces we didn't receive any measurable precipitation except for a few drops. I just happened to look out the window and noticed what looked like a dust devil. After consulting with the National Weather Service, who were on campus for an outdoor concert, we decided it was a gustnado that rolled across Mesilla, NM this afternoon as thunderstorms developed over the Mesilla Valley.
