The low today at NMSU was 40F, just 3 degrees below the long term average.
I'm expecting light southerly flow today. Below are the RUC based predicted winds at 6 pm.
The AQI forecast shows good air quality in our region.
I don't expect the Texas fires to impact our region based on this morning's Hysplit trajectories as transport looks to be heading toward eastern NM and up towards the Great Plains. The same goes for the 800+ acre Centennial wildfire south of Alamogordo. The trajectories show it going north to northeast.
At the end of the day the smoke moved north as Hysplit predicted.
The Carlsbad NMED station shows an increase in PM2.5 through the day, probably from the smoke
