NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – It is a very smoky morning across the Rio Grande Valley and northwest quadrant of the state. Air quality is unhealthy for everyone in the Albuquerque metro and unhealthy for sensitive groups for the rest of central and northwest NM. Smoke has settled because of light winds, but it will be dispersed and pushed northeast throughout the day as the winds pick up more.
