RGB Air Mass Depiction of Potent Dry Slot

A dry slot approaching NM on Friday, February 8, 2013 will deliver a significant blast of high winds, blowing dust, and critical fire weather conditions to portions of central and eastern NM on Saturday, February 9th.  The hybrid RGB Air Mass product from 200pm on the 8th shows an exceptionally well defined delineation between moist cirrus over NM and the deep dry slot over the Great Basin.  The GOES water vapor stitch was positioned perfectly to show the dramatic comparison of the enhanced detail in the atmospheric composition available on the RGB.

Hybrid MODIS-GOES Water Vapor / Air Mass product valid 200pm Friday, February 8, 2013.
