Smoke From The Whitewater-Baldy Fire Complex Covers SE NM.











I shot these at sunset from C-Hill in Carlsbad yesterday.

Smoke from the Whitewater-Baldy Complex Fire burning near Glenwood, New Mexico (located in Southwestern New Mexico) in the Gila Mountains, blanketed southeastern New Mexico and parts of west Texas yesterday into the overnight hours last night.

 At 10:51 AM MDT Wednesday morning the Roswell Industrial Air Center ASOS (KROW) reported a visibility reading of 21/2 miles due to the smoke. The visibility never dropped that low in the Artesia and Carlsbad areas, however a thick blanket of smoke covered our skies yesterday afternoon into the overnight hours. For most of the afternoon the smoke layer was generally hovering around 3,000' to 4,500' above the ground across southeastern New Mexico, except in the Roswell area. 

 The thick plume of smoke is forecast to lift northward today as the winds both at the surface and aloft become more southwesterly over the area. As of early this morning the monstrous fire remains at 0% containment and continues to spread and grow in the high winds.
