9/8/22: Rio Rancho, NM, to Dallas, TX, to Washington, DC

Yesterday was pleasant, though I spent the whole day inside.

This morning has been mild, mostly cloudy and still in Rio Rancho.

Today, I am waiting at the airport to fly from Albuquerque to Dallas to Washington DC. I will spend the night in Falls Church, VA.

The NWS in Albuquerque, NM, forecasts (for Rio Rancho, NM) a partly sunny, hazy day, with a high temperature of 91 F.  Winds will be from the southwest at 5-10 mph.

The NWS in Dallas/Fort Worth, TX, forecasts (for Dallas, TX) a partly sunny afternoon, with a 10% chance of isolated showers and a high temperature of 91 F.  Winds will be from the southeast at 5 mph.

The NWS in Sterling, VA, forecasts (for Falls Church, VA) a mostly clear night, with a low temperature of 63 F.  The winds will be from the north at 3-7 mph.

The NAM 250 mb chart shows the jet is not helping us at all, but it isn’t really hurting us either.

The HRRR simulated reflectivity shows a few, light showers over the Appalachians this evening.

The Aviation Weather Center shows easy flying, with no pockets of turbulence or storms.

I will post from Virginia tomorrow morning.

Thank you for reading my post.
