Reported Peak Wind Gusts Friday Night & Saturday.


Blog Updated At 3:24 PM MST Saturday.

Friday, February 22, 2019.
Looking Southwest From North Of Whites City, New Mexico.

Virga is a common site this time of the year in New Mexico. The Carlsbad Airport ASOS (Automated Surface Weather Observing System) was reporting that these cumulus cloud bases were 11,000' above the ground Friday afternoon when I shot this photo. Notice the ragged appearance at their bases. These are virga trails or precipitation that is falling from the cloud bases but due to the very dry air at and above the surface is evaporating before it reaches the ground. The temperature at the airport at the time was 70ºF with a dew point temperature of 23ºF producing a relative humidity value of just 17%. Very gusty winds are often associated with virga and when strong enough virga bombs form producing blinding localized areas of blowing dust.
