Dec. 17 - No rain for most of the study area. The NWS multisensor rain product showed precipitation only on the western sides of our study area.
On the ground a CoCoRaHS observer in Deming measured 0.02 inches and the rest of Luna County with only a trace amount. It looks like Lordsburg received 0.07 inches and folks up north in Grant County were blessed with rain in the 0.18 to 0.55 inch range. Also a little snow north of Silver City with an CoCoRaHS observer seeing 1 inch of snow west of Pinos Altos.
I only saw one observer in Hidalgo County. Let's see if we can get a few more observers in that area.

The Air Quality Index is in the good range all throughout the region according to the US EPA. I just verified this looking at the NMED air monitoring stations. The plot below is from the core site in Las Cruces.
 Here is the view looking out toward the west over the core site.
