Nov 20 - It warmed up nicely today with high of 70 at the LC Airport, 69 in Santa Teresa, and 73 at the Deming Airport. High clouds most of the day probably kept the temperatures from even higher. It was breezy but based on my vantage point in LC it didn't produce much dust and visibility was normal.

MODIS aerosol optical depth was similar to yesterday with all values in the 0.1 to 0.2 range with the highest along the Rio Grande.
A low wind, high PM event is shaping up in Sunland Park this evening. Below is the hourly PM2.5 at the Sunland Park City Yard.

Tomorrow is expected to be windy with gusts in the 30 mph range from the west-southwest. That might be enough to blow dust in some areas. We'll wait and see.
