NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service El Paso Texas/Santa Teresa nm 
341 PM MDT sun Jul 27 2014 


Synopsis... 
an increase in moisture today along with a trough aloft moving 
northwest across the Borderland tonight will lead to thunderstorms 
across the area...with most thunderstorms west of Deming. Deeper 
moisture will persist over the Borderland for the remainder of the 
week. Despite high pressure aloft remaining over New Mexico and 
Arizona...thunderstorms are expected to be on a gradual 
increase...becoming scattered to numerous by Thursday and beyond. 
Some heavy rain and flooding are possible toward the end of the work 
week. High temperatures will still be above normal Monday but then 
drop to near or below normal through the week as clouds and rain 
increase. 


&& 


Discussion... 
looks like a more active day today after several slow days with 
convection. High pressure aloft has slid off over the Texas 
Panhandle as inverted trough moves from the northern Chihuahua 
desert across SW New Mexico tonight. This increasing southerly flow 
through the day has increased moisture...with precipitable waters of 1.1" to 1.2". 
Morning kepz sounding shows small caps from yesterday gone as good 
cooling aloft erased them. Still expect highest thunderstorm 
coverage west of Deming tonight. Strong thunderstorms south of El 
Paso are throwing out good outflow which should help with the 
central and eastern lowlands tonight. Main threat from storms will 
be strong downburst winds. Dcape values suggest winds of 50+ miles per hour 
middle afternoon but rapidly diminishes by sunset. Pea-size hail also 
possible but high wbz's...around 15000 feet mean sea level...and weak shear 
environment should preclude larger hail. 


Overall trend for the week is to gradually ramp up thunderstorm 
activity. Relatively deep layered moisture will move over the 
County Warning Area...so despite upper high returning back over New Mexico and 
Arizona...plenty of moisture will remain trapped under the high. 
Expect scattered thunderstorms Deming west Monday and Tuesday with 
isolated coverage to the east. Precipitable waters will remain in the 1.2" to 1.4" 
range through Wednesday...possibly getting as high as 1.5" by 
Thursday and beyond. Look for coverage to become scattered to 
numerous Thursday into the weekend as back door front brings in low 
level easterlies and added low level moisture. Will have to watch 
this period as heavy rainfall and flooding will be possible on a 
larger scale. 


&& 


Aviation...valid 28/00z - 29/00z... 
mostly VFR through the period with p6sm sct-bkn080-120. Isolated-scattered 
thunderstorms and rain west of the Continental Divide and in the Sacramento Mountains wind 
generally 5-10kts except strong and gusty near any thunderstorms. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
high pressure aloft will keep most of the area dry with above 
normal temperatures this evening into tonight. Areas east of the 
Continental Divide will have only a small chance of isolated 
thunderstorms through the night...but area mountains and locations 
west of The Divide will likely have scattered thunderstorms. The 
chance for showers and thunderstorms tomorrow will again be higher 
west of The Divide and in area mountains...with only a slim chance 
elsewhere. Afternoon temperatures down to near normal tomorrow and 
Tuesday with minimum humidity in the middle 20s to middle 30s over The 
Lowlands...and around 10 points higher in the mountains Haines indices 
very low (2 or 3) tomorrow and Tuesday with generally light winds. 
Thunderstorm activity may increase significantly Thursday into the 
weekend with the potential for heavy rain and perhaps localized 
flooding.
