NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service El Paso Texas/Santa Teresa nm 
319 am MDT Monday Mar 30 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure that brought record warmth and dry conditions to the 
Borderland for the weekend will move away as a Pacific low 
pressure system moves in from the west. Moisture is on the 
increase and temperatures will be on the decrease. Later today 
through Tuesday the region will see isolated rain showers and a 
few thunderstorms as the system slowly passes. It appears most 
locations will stay dry and those that get rain probably won't get 
a lot. Wednesday and Thursday a dry westerly weather pattern sets 
back up. This will bring breezy to windy conditions to the region. 
Friday night and Saturday look cooler as a cold front moves. Early 
indications are that next weekend will see more clouds...but 
likely remain dry. 


&& 


Discussion... 
surface front pushing in from the east early this morning. It 
won't have much impact...just a weak bit of cooling...but it will 
wash out this afternoon. High pressure ridge has shifted east and 
the fetch aloft is now SW. This has allowed a nice subtropical 
moisture connection aloft off the front side of an upper low 
spinning well off the Baja California to our SW. Result is plenty of high- 
level cloudiness across the forecast area. This low is showing 
signs of beginning a slow eastward track toward the Baja California and the 
models indicate it will pass to our south Tuesday. Models...in 
agreement...with keeping the precipitation potential low with this system 
passage. 


For today...slightly cooler...lesser breezes...plenty of clouds. 
Very slight chances of any precipitation. Models are all over the place on 
where any precipitation will fall...but they all seem to hold off until the 
late afternoon/evening hours to start it. Precipitable waters and surface dewpoints do 
come up a fair amount with this system but the low levels never 
really do moisten up. This keeps the instability minimal. Thus 
precipitation coverage should be limited...and thunderstorms even more so. 
Thus probability of precipitation in the isolated range. The system has slowed in the 
models and thus probability of precipitation are extended into Tuesday afternoon...due 
mainly to lingering moisture and daytime heating instability. 


The system exits the region late Tuesday and a deep zonal pattern 
quickly takes over the southwestern U.S. This will put our area 
under a deep dry and warm westerly flow. Deep mixing with tighter 
gradients and stronger winds aloft combined with Lee surface 
troughing will make for stronger surface winds. Temperatures will 
warm and skies should clear. Breezy Wednesday and windy Thursday. 
We'll have to watch Thursday for the first dust of the year. 


Friday winds look to shut down as high pressure sets up in the 
Southern Plains and pushes a backdoor front toward the region. 
This front is prognosticated to move in Friday night. Models differ on 
it's strength and effects. GFS looks to be overdoing it with 
strong push and cold air...given the upper pattern not real 
conducive. GFS also shows precipitation with this front and an upper 
trough. The European model (ecmwf) is dry and looks more realistic. Thus the 
forecast is for the dry solution at this time. 


Next weekend looks dry and seasonal to warm with light to moderate 
winds. 


&& 


Aviation...valid 30/12z-01/12z... 
upper level ridge of high pressure over the region will continue to 
flatten and move east of the area. A slow approaching Pacific 
trough will turns winds southwest and allow subtropical moisture 
to stream over the region. Isolated high based mountain -tsra/ceilings 
080-100/wind vrb25g40kt are psble after 19z today. Winds should favor 
east this morning behind a weak front from the east and then flip 
back westerly in the afternoon. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
weak cold front pushed in from the east overnight. This will bring 
a short shift to light east-northeast-east winds under 15 miles per hour through early 
morning. High pressure aloft that has been over the southwestern 
United States...continues to weaken rapidly and move east of the 
region. This will allow the sub tropical jet stream to 
restrengthen over the region and northern Mexico. The flow will 
open US up to a series of weak disturbances early next 
week...generating high based convection Monday and Tuesday. Monday 
afternoon/early evening look for isolated showers/storms over the 
mountains. Tuesday afternoon convection should spread over The 
Lowlands. Dry lightning and gusty winds to 50 miles per hour will be the main 
threats with the convection. 


Threat shifts to development of critical fire conditions Wednesday 
and especially Thursday...as the Pacific jet stream drops southward 
and strengthens over The Four Corners later in the week. This is 
ahead of a weak middle latitude trough due in for the southern rockies 
at that time. 


Highs will run well above normal for the first half of the work 
week. Min relative humidity Monday and Tuesday will range from near 10% south 
central/SW deserts...to middle-upper 20s for the sacs and eastern 
Hudspeth County. Values should fall another 5-8 percent Wednesday-Friday all 
areas under the southwest flow. Highest winds should be 
Thursday...where critical fire conditions are anticipated. Mixing 
heights should range from 12000-17000 feet. Look for good to 
excellent vent rates Monday...becoming fair to poor over Tularosa 
basin and Rio Grande Valley. Very good to excellent rates are 
forecast all areas for the latter half of the work week.
