April 14 - Windy day with dust in some isolated areas

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.
Later in the afternoon the winds stay strong in the south but lessen in northern Dona Ana County. Below are predicted winds at 21 UTC (3 pm) from the 12Z RUC model.

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.
