My daughter took this photo of blowing dust underneath
a virga bomb this afternoon. She was at the junction of US Hwy
285 and State Road 13 in Chaves County. A dry high based
thunderstorm was dissipating nearby at the time.
A lone thunderstorm fired up about 30 miles northwest of Roswell yesterday afternoon and quickly became severe. The Albuquerque National Weather Service issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for this storm, but to my knowledge, no severe weather reports were received.
This mornings update on the Whitewater-Baldy Complex Fire states that
217,988 227,000 acres have been consumed. Firefighters are making some progress due to higher humidity values and lighter winds. Containment is now at 15%. Photos of the fire can be found here.
Not much overall change is anticipated in our local weather today into the first of next week. A few isolated hit & miss thunderstorms may fire up, but overall our chances of getting wetting rains are slim.
Our afternoon highs temperatures will range from near 100 to the low 100's today into at least the first of next week.
