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. Reported Peak Winds Last Night And Today. Peak Wind Gusts Reported Saturday Since Midnight. KOA Cam

136ºF Temperature Difference Friday. RTMA Temperatures At 4 PM MST Friday. February can often offer up some pretty crazy weather extremes and this month has been no exception. There was a 136ºF temperature difference across the nation yesterday.  Take a look at some of the other pretty extreme weather events that have happened so far this month across the nation.
