NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service El Paso Texas/Santa Teresa nm 
206 PM MDT Friday Sep 4 2015 


Synopsis... 
a plume of moisture will continue flow over the region through the 
Labor Day weekend. Isolated lowland and scattered mountain showers 
and thunderstorms will be possible. A few of the storms may 
produce periods of moderate to heavy rainfall with localized minor 
flooding possible. Day time temperatures will remain near or 
slightly above normal. There continue to be a chance of rain and 
thunderstorms for much of next week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
National Weather Service radar indicates scattered light showers 
occurring across the area so far this afternoon. Rain amounts have 
been under a tenth of an inch. The thick cloud cover has limited 
day time heating and is helping to suppress thunderstorm 
development. Even through a plume of subtropical moisture is 
flowing over the region...warm temperatures aloft associated with 
high pressure aloft are keeping lapse rates weak...resulting in 
fewer storms despite the presence of moisture. 


Scattered showers and widely scattered thunderstorms are still 
possible later this afternoon and tonight for areas mainly west 
and north of Las Cruces...due to abundant moisture. Areas to the 
east and south of Las Cruces are a bit more stable and have a bit 
less moisture which will result in fewer showers and storms 
through tonight. There is a still a possibility of a few storms 
becoming strong enough to develop heavier rainfall...but most 
storms will remain weaker. Widespread flooding is not expected but 
a few areas of minor localized flooding along drainages may occur 
near heavy rain producing storms...especially in the Gila region 
tonight. 


During the Labor Day weekend...the plume of moisture will become 
more diffuse and weaker as a low pressure system passing well 
north of the area pulls it apart at its northern end. Also...high 
pressure aloft will continue to build over the area...helping to 
suppress further thunderstorm development. There will still be 
enough moisture and heating around to allow for isolated storm 
development but rain amounts will be for the most part light and 
spotty with just a few areas of moderate rainfall. Mountain zones 
will have the better chance of measurable precipitation. Day time 
temperatures during the Holiday weekend will average from near 
normal to a few degrees above normal. Skies will be partly cloudy 
and winds will be light...except near thunderstorms. 


For next week...moisture trapped under a strong area of high 
pressure aloft will be able to help develop isolated storms over 
the region. Mountain zones will see a more scattered distribution 
of storms in the afternoon. Models do project a frontal boundary 
to push into the area Wednesday...followed by another one next 
Friday. Convection developing along these surface boundaries will 
help keep a chance of storms developing over the area through the 
latter part of next week. Temperatures will remain near or 
slightly above normals through the period.

Aviation...valid 05/00z-06/00z. 
P6sm scattered-bkn070-090 broken-ovc150-200 through period. Scattered 6sm rain showers bkn040-060 
with isolated ts west of Rio Grande and area mountains...isolated east of river. 
Winds generally west to northwest at or below 12kts...but stronger with gusts near 
thunderstorms. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
plenty of moisture will remain across the region through most of 
next week. Best rain chances will continue to be west of the Rio 
Grande and area mountains...but areas east will still see isolated 
coverage. Mostly cloudy conditions will likely limit thunderstorm 
development this afternoon and possibly again Saturday. Minimum 
relative humidities will remain well above 20 percent for The 
Lowlands and in the 30s and 40s for the mountains. Temperatures will 
remain near normal into next week.
