March 28 - A windy day is on course but not a lot of dust expected. Some localized windblown dust from erodible areas is to be expected.

Below is the 15UTC run of the 20kmRUC model showing surface winds at 21 UTC (3 pm MDT). It looks similar to last night's prediction so I expect again that the highest winds are to be north of I-10 and mainly over northern Luna and Dona Ana counties.

Over all the NMED sites in the region today we saw three sites with hourly averaged PM10 over 150 µg/m3 in response to the wind. Those were at Anthony, Sunland Park City Yard, and Las Cruces Holman Road.

Today's AQI forecast from the EPA is green across all of NM
