NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service El Paso Texas/Santa Teresa nm 
321 PM MDT Monday Oct 20 2014 


Synopsis... 
upper low just south of the New Mexico bootheel will lift out 
northeast across New Mexico on Tuesday and weaken. This will allow 
more showers and thunderstorms tonight and Tuesday as low level 
moisture persists. Another upper trough quickly follows behind this 
first low and will continue the chance of rain on Wednesday. The 
rain will end from west to east the latter portion of Wednesday as 
that upper trough eventually pushes east of the area. Temperatures 
will remain a bit below normal. On Thursday high pressure aloft 
builds over the Borderland to bring US sunny skies and temperatures 
back above normal. West flow then straightens...collapsing and then 
moving the ridge eastward Friday into the weekend. This flow will 
remain dry however with little in the way of clouds over the 
weekend. Temperatures will warm to well above normal. 


&& 


Discussion... 
upper low now appears to be just south of the nm bootheel. The low 
will slowly lift northeast overnight opening into an open wave by 
Tuesday morning over central New Mexico. This will allow scattered 
showers/thunderstorms to continue tonight through Tuesday as low 
level moisture persists...dew points in the 50s. Deeper layers 
moisture will remain north of the area but current precipitable waters over the County Warning Area 
are around .8" and models showing those precipitable waters remaining around 
8"-.9" on Tuesday. The airmass will remain slightly unstable 
tonight and Tuesday so some lightning is expected. It appears that 
as good as the hrrr performed last night...it is that bad today. 
Model shows strong convection to have already formed over West Texas 
and moved northwest over El Paso by around this time. While some 
convection is forming in this area...not even close to the same 
coverage as the hrrr is showing. 


By Tuesday night open wave is now over the Texas Panhandle as next 
Pacific trough rapidly moves in behind...over western Arizona late 
Tuesday night and to central New Mexico middle day on Wednesday. This 
may enhance more thunderstorms initially on Wednesday but will 
eventually end shower activity from west to east by afternoon as 
ridging and warmer air aloft build over the southwest. Will leave 
low probability of precipitation in far eastern County Warning Area Wednesday evening but otherwise expect 
clearing by late afternoon. Temperatures will remain a bit below 
normal with the cloud cover. 


Aforementioned upper ridge builds into high centered over New Mexico 
by Friday...and then gradually drifts east and erodes away as strong 
west flow develops as strong Pacific trough moves across the central 
rockies by Sunday afternoon. This looks better timed than previous 
GFS runs so Sunday may become windier than originally thought. 
Otherwise dry and warm from Thursday Onward with temperatures back 
above normal. 


&& 


Aviation...valid 21/00z - 21/00z... 
an upper level low pressure system will slowly weaken and drift east 
across the local area tonight and tomorrow. Areas of rain showers and thunderstorms and rain 
will develop mostly east of kdmn through through 12z. Visibility will be 
periodically reduced to less than 3sm in moderate to heavy rain. The 
cloud deck will increase and lower to between 5000 to 6000 feet above ground level. 
Through 12z. Ceilings at ktcs may be lower overnight. Prevailing winds 
will be from northeast to east at 5 to 10 knots with stronger gusts 
in and near thunderstorms. 


Fire weather... 
the upper low pressure system will gradually weaken and continue to 
slowly move to the east tonight and Tuesday. Scattered to numerous 
showers and thunderstorms will be possible. A weak secondary trough 
will move through the area Tuesday night and Wednesday with 
scattered showers and thunderstorms possible...mostly east of 
Deming. Dry conditions will occur Thursday into the next weekend as 
high pressure builds over the area. Temperatures will be below 
normal during the day and humidity values will be high through 
Wednesday. Temperatures will increase and humidity values will drop 
significantly for Thursday through the weekend as drier and more 
stable air moves into the region. High pressure may result in some 
strong inversions in the mornings with poor ventilation rates 
possible by midweek and into next Saturday.
