Refreshing to see dust had settled out by the morning. There was even precipitation falling on the Organ Mountains this morning. Below is this morning's observations at few NWS Cooperative weather stations.

Today's AQI forecast shows moderate air quality over far west Texas and the Paso del Norte.
We will likely receive some precipitation from this storm but not a lot. This morning's QPF map shows most of it falling in the Bootheel region.
Looking out the window today, it looks like we received some precipitation this afternoon.  Based on the radar, most of the precipitation fell south of El Paso. The website showed that snow fell  briefly around Lordsburg but melted.
