Saturday was a bit unusual as far as the wind goes in Southeastern New Mexico. There was a donut hole of "less wind" than encompassed Eddy County. The highest wind gust was 55 mph at the Bat Draw Raws located near the Carlsbad Caverns Visitor Center. Guadalupe Pass (ASOS) reported a gust to 82 mph as did the Bowl Raws located just north of Guadalupe Peak. 




A significant area of blowing dust was indicated on Saturday's MODIS images in West Texas. Widespread blowing dust that reduced the visibility was reported in Chaves and Lea Counties and eastward into West Texas. Notice the snow covering the Sacramento and Capitan mountains.
