Morning Fog & Frost - Afternoon Lenticular Clouds.


Dense Early Morning Fog In The Pecos Valley.

February 2, 2019.
South 13th Street Artesia, New Mexco.

My wife and I left Carlsbad Saturday morning and headed north up US Hwy 285 to Artesia. We were in the soup the whole way with average visibility ranging from 50 yards to around 1/4 of a mile in the dense morning fog. By the time we turned onto south 13th street south of Artesia we encountered clearing skies to our west. We drove out of the fog bank on south 26th. Headed west as we passed by the Artesia Airport on the west side of town the skies were clear with the fog bank visible to our east still enveloping Artesia.

This was our view as we dropped down out of San Augustine Pass...looking northeast towards the Sacramento mountains.
