Fire Plumes, Jet Streaks, Dry Slots & Heat in RGB Imagery

On Monday, June 24th, 2013, afternoon temperatures soared into the mid 80s to low 100s across New Mexico. Meanwhile, continued dry conditions allowed surface relative humidities to fall below 15 percent for several hours.  The RGB Airmass imagery caught a nice example of New Mexico wildfire plumes exploding as the dry slot/jet streak moved overhead.

New Mexico fire plumes grew as dry and windy conditions returned.
