NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service El Paso Texas/Santa Teresa nm 
323 am MDT Friday Apr 18 2014 


Synopsis... 
increasing moisture across the region today and Saturday will lead 
to isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms. Rainfall 
amounts will generally be under a quarter inch...but some 
localized areas...especially over the higher elevations may see a 
half to three-quarters of an inch. Drier and warmer conditions 
return for early next week with some areas possibly seeing their 
first 90 degree reading by Tuesday. 


&& 


Discussion... 
main forecast challenge is in the short term with upper low/trough 
currently just off the far Southern California coast and precipitation chances 
over next couple of days. Dew points about 20-25 degrees higher 
over eastern two-thirds of County Warning Area compared to yesterday at this time 
as east winds have kicked in. Should see them continue to rise 
through the morning hours with some areas nearing 40 by 12z. Winds 
will be shifting around to the west-southwest over western County Warning Area this afternoon 
and bring in some Baja California moisture. Models indicate some weak 
instability for this afternoon over far west and far east with 
first of several disturbances forecast to move through over the 
next 36-48 hours before trough axis finally moves east of area. Kept 
probability of precipitation close to what we had going...but did extend a little further 
west into eastern El Paso County where best surface convergence 
sets up this afternoon near pseudo dryline. Plenty of cloud cover 
already in area and should remain so through the day which will 
keep temperatures mainly in the 70s to around 80. Increased probability of precipitation to at 
least 20 percent for all areas overnight with 30 probability of precipitation far east and 
higher elevations. Mild overnight lows expected with continued 
broken-overcast cloud deck keeping temperatures in the 50s to middle 60s. 


Decent instability forecast by models for Sat across region with 
lifted indice's around -2c. Some directional shear will be present...best in 
the east during the early to middle afternoon along with some speed 
shear above h70. Low wbz heights forecast so could see some 
marginal severe hail with the strongest storms but do not expect 
anything widespread. Again have highest probability of precipitation Sat east of Rio 
Grande and mountains and isolated probability of precipitation SW. Given clouds and precipitation 
around through the day...went toward the lower end of guidance 
temperatures if not below. Kept probability of precipitation going over east into Sat evening and 
then just sacs after 06z. Models continuing to slow progression of 
this trough through area so later shifts may have to keep mention 
in at least eastern County Warning Area into possibly Sun morning. 


Upper ridge will start to build over the region for first part of 
next week with temperatures warming back into the 80s with some 
areas getting their first 90 degree readings Tuesday. Another upper 
low will be moving into the Pacific northwest late Tuesday/Wednesday and Borderland 
will not feel any affects precipitation wise with this...but winds will 
increase some Tuesday and especially Wednesday-Thursday when most critical fire 
weather conditions are possible. Highs Wednesday again 80s to near 90 
with a slight cool down as trough passes Thursday. Mex guidance trying 
to show big cool down for area Friday on back side of trough...but 
with ridge quickly building back in and winds S to SW...do not see 
much if any cool down expected...so went above guidance values. 






&& 


Aviation...valid 18/12z-19/12z. 
From 12z-18z...bkn-ovc200-250 with east-southeast winds 8-15kts. After 18z scattered- 
bkn100-120 broken-ovc200-250 with isolated to scattered 5sm -tsra bkn040-050 
with strongest storms possibly having small hail and wind gusts to 
40kts along with MVFR conds. Winds shift around to the S to SW 
10-15kts this afternoon and become variable under 10kts after 02z. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
low level moisture currently moving into the area from both the 
southeast and by this afternoon...the southwest. Isolated storms 
possible this afternoon far SW nm...Hudspeth and eastern Otero 
counties. A few dry lightning strikes possible over the higher 
terrain before deeper moisture makes its way in. Chance for 
showers and thunderstorms continues through Saturday night with 
much higher relative humidities. Drier air will move in for early 
next week with high temperatures warming back into the 80s with 
some low 90s possible. Critical fire weather conditions possible 
Wednesday and Thursday as winds increase to 20-35 miles per hour.
