April Winding Down With More Wind

Many are suffering from allergies locally in the wake of a number of windy and dusty days, and there seems to be little relief in sight. The 06 UTC wind plumes from the GEFS shown above forecast several windy days from now through May 2nd. The 06 UTC WRF-GFS forecast of 10-m winds (below on the 5.4 km grid valid at 4:00 pm MST this afternoon) forecasts a very windy afternoon across most of the Southwest. The low humidity over much of the region combines with the winds to produce dangerous wildfire conditions, as per today's outlook (bottom) from the SPC.
