NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service El Paso Texas/Santa Teresa nm 
320 am MDT Wednesday Aug 27 2014 


Synopsis... 
an upper level disturbance will move across southern New Mexico 
and West Texas today bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms 
to the Borderland. Heavy rainfall...hail and strong winds may 
occur with a few of the storms. Westerly winds will then transport 
warmer drier air into the region Thursday through early next week. 
As a result we'll see mostly dry weather with plenty of sunshine 
and above normal temperatures Thursday through the Labor Day 
Holiday weekend. 


&& 


Discussion... 
moist unstable air remains across the County Warning Area this morning while a 
weak impulse moves across the region. Consequently scattered 
showers with isolated thunderstorms persist mainly east of the Rio 
Grande. 


For today primary upper trough axis will move west to east across 
the County Warning Area while abundant moisture covers the region. Precipitable 
water will from an inch in the fat west to 1.5 inches in the 
east supporting an unstable air mass as convective available potential energy will range from 
around 800 to 1600 j/kg. Lifting along/ahead of the trough axis 
thus generate convection today with most activity over the eastern 
half of the forecast areas where greater moisture/instability will 
exist. Wind and thermodynamic profiles will again be favorable for 
slow moving and even back building storms so threat of heavy rains 
will continue. In addition wind shear will be unseasonably strong 
with 30 knots westerly winds around the 6 km layer. This flow will 
also advect drier air at middle levels. Thus isolated storms may 
attain severe levels with the potential for both hail and strong 
downbursts. 


Trough will move east of the County Warning Area later this evening with subsiding 
northwest flow aloft behind it transporting drier air into the 
region Thursday and Friday. Weak zonal flow will subsequently 
induce Lee surface troughing over the Holiday weekend into early 
next week with deep westerly flow resulting. This will sustain 
inflow of dry and very warm air mass. This pattern will force 
precipitable water to fall to around .5 to .75 inch by Friday 
afternoon with little possibility form recovery due to the west 
flow. So outlook after today will call for mostly dry weather with 
temperatures above normal. 


&& 


Aviation...valid 27/12z-28/12z. 
Scattered areas of MVFR ceilings and visibilities and isolated IFR 
conditions in showers and thunderstorms with most activity ending 
by 03z. Mostly VFR conditions with ceilings above 10,000 feet above ground level 
after 03z. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
an upper level disturbance will move across southern New Mexico 
and West Texas today bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms 
to the Borderland. Heavy rainfall...hail and strong winds may 
occur with a few of the storms. Westerly winds will then transport 
warmer drier air into the region Thursday through early next week. 
As a result we'll see mostly dry weather with plenty of sunshine 
and above normal temperatures Thursday through the Labor Day 
Holiday weekend. Lowest humidity today will be around 30 to 40 
percent lowlands and 40 to 50 percent mountains today decreasing 
to 20 to 30 percent Friday afternoon and 15 to 25 percent 
Saturday.
