Talk About the Weather

The Wind! The Relentless Wind!

If you were hoping for a little spring breeze so you could have a break while Albuquerque marches through spring and on to summer, it looks like your prayers have been answered—forcefully. The National Weather Service has issued a High Wind Warning for the Albuquerque metro area, meaning that you can expect 40 mph sustained winds and 58 mph gusts today.

The Albuquerque Journal reported that winds are so strong down in southern New Mexico that the sand being kicked up in nature's little tantrum is visible from space. As if to confirm the conditions outside, the weather gadget on my computer desktop lists the conditions not as windy or cloudy. No, it says “Dust.”

Those who happen to keep important, loose papers outside might want to take them inside, and if you for some reason have a sail attached to the roof of your car, now is the time to remove it. This bout of bad weather doesn't have to be all inconvenience, though— if you want to set a world-record wind-assisted sprint time, just find a track where the breeze is at your back and hope for the best.
