After some travel and vacation I'm back to blogging air quality along the border region. So far here in Las Cruces we received 0.77 inches of rain in July. That's about 48% of what we typically receive in the month of July. There's still 12 more days to go in the month although we're expecting a dry period over the next few days. The 5 day QPF shows most of the precipitation falling to the west of us and in the mountains over that period.
A few isolated storms are providing some precipitation across the border along the bootheel this afternoon. Below is the radar reflectivity at 6:21 pm today. There are also reports of street flooding in El Paso this afternoon.
