It was a bit smoky outside this morning from the wildfires in Arizona. But it has cleared up a little this afternoon.
There is one wildfire (the Tadpole Fire) near Silver City, New Mexico and is 30% contained.
According to WDRB News:
It is still relatively early in the wildfire season out West but already wildfires are crossing the state of Arizona and heading into New Mexico. Four large wildfires were captured by the NASA Aqua satellite on June 17, 2020 in this image. Three of them are in Arizona and one is inside the state line of New Mexico.
We sure as heck could use some rain to dampen the dry conditions in the southwest.
