I did not do a full prediction today, but I did want to point out the smoke from several ongoing wildfires around New Mexico.
There are at least three fires burning within 150 miles of my house, so the Albuquerque area is filled with smoke.
On visible satellite imagery, the smoke is visible as a trace in the center of the state. Notice the large “cloud” over eastern New Mexico and into southeastern Colorado. Most of that is smoke from the Dog Head fire that cleared out over night.
On infrared satellite imagery, there is a very obvious colder signature that traces the Rio Grande River valley. Typically, this area is warmer than average, but today there is a cooler “cloud” that has settled into the valley.
Thank you for reading my post.
College of Dupage is my new go-to for satellite imagery, cause it rules.
