June 18

Air quality impacts from the fires in Arizona were predicted to be in the moderate AQI range today. Blowing dust in isolated locations will potentially degrade this.
This morning light haze filled the skies in Las Cruces with light winds. Winds at the Deming radar wind profiler showed westerly and west-southwest winds throughout the day.

A nice milky pink sunset at 8:11 pm. Pichacho Peak is to the left of the image.
Samplers are ready for the dust tomorrow. Below we have the MiniVol and a PQ167 below that. These are collocated with the DustTrak II, a CL31 ceilometer, meteorological station, and the NWS Cooperative Observer site.
