Today looks to be windy across most of the region. If the RUC model is accurate peak winds in the Mesilla Valley are predicted to be around noon.
The AQI forecast shows an area of moderate (yellow) air quality over Dona Ana, El Paso, and SW Otero counties. They attribute it to ozone.
At 11 am I see dust on the horizon and some local windblown dust in Las Cruces.
