gusts to 50 mph.

* Timing: winds will increase through the late morning and become
the strongest in the mid to late afternoon hours. Winds will
diminish later this evening.

* Impact: strong winds will create hazardous driving conditions
for drivers of high profile vehicles and motorcycles. Blowing
dust will also restrict visibilities. Wildfire danger will be
elevated... be careful with flames and Sparks.

* Visibility: many areas will see visibilities slightly reduced
to three to five miles... but a few dust prone locations could
see visibilities reduced to less than 1/2 mile. Visibility
will improve after sunset.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Wind Advisory means that winds of 35 mph are expected. Winds
this strong can make driving difficult... especially for high
profile vehicles. Use extra caution.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service El Paso Texas/Santa Teresa nm 
358 am MDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
an upper level disturbance will move across the southern Rocky 
Mountains today bringing windy dry and warm weather to southern 
New Mexico and West Texas. Weak high pressure will result in 
continued seasonably warm dry weather with lighter winds Thursday 
and Friday. However a deep low pressure system with a cold front 
will generate very high winds on Saturday followed by cooler 
temperatures early next week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
zonal progressive weather pattern will bring typical Spring Time 
weather into the weekend with periods of high winds. The first 
episode will be today when an upper trough moves across the 
southern rockies with associated dynamics aloft and downslope flow 
inducing Lee cyclone over eastern Colorado. Trailing surface 
trough will extend into eastern New Mexico with deep west to 
southwest flow transporting warm dry air into thew County Warning Area. This 
combined with surface heating will result in dry surface to 
600 mb lapse rates with these factors inducing windy conditions 
this afternoon. Wind speeds still look to be near advisory 
criteria most areas so will continue with Wind Advisory for this 
afternoon and early tonight. 


Trough and attendant weak Pacific cold front will move across the 
County Warning Area this evening with weak cool air advection lowering high 
temperatures around 5 degrees on Thursday. By Friday winds become 
more southwesterly again ahead of West Coast trough so 
temperatures should rise above normal. 


Possible major wind event could evolve on Saturday. Very deep 
500 mb upper low will move across Arizona into New Mexico with 70 
to 80 knots middle level flow extending into New Mexico and West Texas 
by early evening. Associated upper dynamics combined with 
downslope winds will generate deep Lee cyclone over eastern 
Colorado with trailing surface trough extending into eastern New 
Mexico. Gradients consequently strengthen significantly with 
warm dry nature of air mass resulting in mixing heights to 600 mb 
by late afternoon. Thus very windy conditions possible with wind 
speeds likely exceeding advisory levels all locations and even 
attaining warning levels over some portions of the County Warning Area. 


Trough and attendant cold front will move east of the County Warning Area Saturday 
night but gradients should support breezy to windy conditions on 
Sunday with cold air advection lowering temperatures around 10 
degrees. Longer range models indicate blocking pattern will exist 
much of next week with the County Warning Area being located between deep trough 
to the east and high amplitude ridge to the west. Resultant flow 
will sustain transport of cooler air from the north/northeast so 
temperatures should stay below normal later periods. 


&& 


Aviation...valid 23/12z-24/12z. 
Westerly winds will transport warm dry air into the region with no 
ceilings expected below 12,000 feet above ground level. However an upper 
disturbance will produce windy conditions between 20z and 03z 
resulting wind gusts around 45 knots and isolated MVFR visibilities 
in blowing dust. In addition expect moderate or greater turbulence 
below 10,000 feet above ground level during this time. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
mostly west to southwest winds will sustain inflow of warm dry 
air mass through Saturday with lowest afternoon humidity around 5 
to 10 percent lowlands and 10 to 20 percent mountains each day. An 
upper disturbance will meanwhile bring windy conditions this 
afternoon with wind speeds exceeding red flag criteria. Slightly 
cooler temperatures and lighter winds forecasted for Thursday but 
temperatures will rise above normal and wind speeds increase to 
near breezy on Friday. A deep low pressure system will result in 
very high winds on Saturday resulting in red flag conditions 
again. A passing cold front will bring cooler below normal 
temperatures early next week.
