June 26

Today's high was 105.8 or rounded to 106. The record for today was a blazing 109 set back in 1994. Our minimum this morning was 73. The long term averages for today are low 65 and high 97. The winds based on the 18Z RUC showed WNW directions in the north part of our region.
The day started off clear but by the afternoon clouds developed over the state. The AQI forecast for today predicted moderate (yellow) air quality over most of Dona Ana and Unhealthy for sensitive groups (orange) over El Paso county.
The Albuquerque radar showed virga over central NM and the path of the Las Conchas wildfire smoke plume. Below is a snapshot at 7 pm from GOES. An image loop of GOES imagery showing the Las Conchas plume has been posted to YouTube. And a view from a webcam north of Santa Fe shows the plume in detail today.
