An apparent haboob – a wall of dust kicked up by high winds – swept through eastern New Mexico and west Texas Tuesday evening as a strong cold front associated with Winter Storm Vulcan swept through the region.
The front brought a sudden burst of strong northerly winds and sharply colder air, kicking up massive amounts of dust across the drought-stricken region.

Haboobs in the U.S. are more typically associated with rain-cooled air rushing out from monsoon-season thunderstorms in Arizona, famously striking cities such as Phoenix in recent years. However, the passage of strong cold fronts such as today's can also cause these dusty spectacles.
