Rio Rancho, NM, to Boston, MA

Yesterday was hot, and we received none of the storms that the southeastern part of the state received.

This morning has been warm, hazy and still.

Today, we will catch an afternoon flight from Albuquerque, NM, to Kansas City, MO, to Boston, MA.

The NWS in Albuquerque, NM, forecasts (for Rio Rancho, NM) a mostly sunny day, with a 30% chance of showers and thunderstorms, and a high temperature of 91 F.  The winds will be from the southeast at 5-10 mph.

The NWS in Kansas City, MO, forecasts (for Kansas City, MO) a mostly clear night, with a 10% chance of showers and thunderstorms, and a low temperature of 71 F.  Winds will be calm.

The NWS in Norton, MA, forecasts (for Boston, MA) a mostly clear night, with a  low temperature of 71 F.  Winds will be from the west at 6-8 mph.

The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has issued a Marginal Risk for several parts of our travel route.  I wonder how our flights will be impacted…

The HRRR simulated reflectivity shows that storms are expected to fire by mid-afternoon.  I think we will get out of town and be north of these storms, but I’m no pilot.

I will post from Boston tomorrow.  It looks like we dodged their heat wave yesterday (thankfully).

Thank you for reading my post.
