NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service El Paso Texas/Santa Teresa nm 
300 PM MDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure aloft over the Borderland will start to move 
eastward and weaken Friday as a minor trough aloft moves across 
southern New Mexico Friday evening and Saturday. Meanwhile...a 
backdoor cold front will push westward into or area tonight and 
Friday dropping temperatures some 5 to 8 degrees. This front will 
produce locally breezy easterly winds especially west of area 
mountains later tonight through Friday night. The upper level 
disturbance will bring a slight chance of showers and even a 
thunderstorm mainly over the mountains of southern New Mexico 
later Friday and early Saturday. This trough will quickly move 
east of the area Saturday afternoon pushed by another stronger 
Pacific trough. This system will bring breezy southerly winds on 
Saturday and west southwest winds in the windy category for 
Sunday. Additional moisture will move into the area by Sunday 
night over most of southern New Mexico and far West Texas to 
produce slight chances of thunderstorms Monday into Tuesday 
morning. Temperatures will remain around normal through Sunday 
then drop to below normal for most of next week as the upper 
trough slowly moves out of the area by midweek. 






&& 


Discussion... 
short term forecast remains on track...but middle/long term forecast 
has changed significantly from yesterday. Previous runs had GFS 
and Canadian models fairly progressive with the Euro forming and 
closed low to our southwest wrapping the moisture and prolonging 
the precipitation in our area past middle week. However...the 12z runs of 
the three models are in better agreement now with a more 
progressive solution (which based on the present upper wave 
pattern seems very reasonable) and pushes the moisture out by 
Tuesday. The Euro has gone from a closed low to an open trough but 
remains about 12-24 hours later on tropa vs the GFS but at the 
same times now pushed the precipitation eastward by Tuesday. 


The middle/hi clouds from the first minor upper disturbance (now over 
Southern California at 21z) will arrive in our area this evening 
moving over a backdoor cold front which will push westward 
tonight driven by a fairly strong surface pressure gradient.Moderate 
to strong low level flow behind this front could produce wind 
gusts from 30 to 40 miles per hour at times locally on west slopes and 
through passes and canyons continuing into Friday evening. 


Models continue to show a slight risk for some showers and 
thunderstorms later Friday into early Saturday and mainly over the 
mountains of southern New Mexico and the western portions of of 
the County Warning Area. This activity should move east out of the area by 
Saturday afternoon as the minor trough moves east. Surface winds 
should veer becoming more southerly on Saturday in the breezy 
category (15-25) miles per hour as the next stronger system approaches from 
the west. 


As mentioned above...models are now in much better agreement on 
the 12z runs and become more progressive bringing showers and 
thunderstorms into the area later Sunday into Monday then 
pushing it eastward by Tuesday. Temperatures will then fall below normal 
my midweek (around 5 to 10 degrees) with this stronger system. This 
larger trough will also induce a fairly good Lee surface trough 
in eastern Colorado and New Mexico Sunday and the surface 
pressure gradient together with stronger winds aloft (35 to 45 
knots at 700 mb) will allow winds to gust into the windy category 
Sunday. It's been about two weeks since any significant 
precipitation so some patches of blowing dust may also be possible 
on Sunday. 




&& 


Aviation...valid 30/00z - 31/00z... 
VFR at all terminals through the period...with some increasing high 
clouds overnight. Light winds will increase above 10 knot out of the 
east after 03z tonight over The Lowlands as high pressure settles in 
over the southern Great Plains. Winds will be lighter and more 
variable at tcs. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
surface high building southward over the great plans will bring a 
shift to steadier easterly flow overnight...and temperatures a few 
degrees cooler for Friday afternoon. A weak upper level disturbance 
may bring a few spotty showers or thunderstorms to the higher 
elevations in SW New Mexico tomorrow afternoon/evening. 


A more powerful upper trough will approach the area Saturday and 
Sunday...with winds shifting to the south and then southwest. Winds 
may gust above 20 miles per hour late Saturday afternoon in SW New Mexico...and 
gusty winds will be common on Sunday ahead of the main trough as 
well. Increasing moisture both at the low levels and aloft will lead 
to another chance of thunderstorms across the area later Sunday and 
Sunday night.
