NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service El Paso Texas/Santa Teresa nm 
219 PM MDT Monday Jun 29 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure aloft will bring very warm weather to southern New 
Mexico and West Texas through Wednesday. A few showers and 
thunderstorms will be possible each day with most of the storms 
occurring around mountain areas. Showers and thunderstorms will 
be more widespread Thursday through the Fourth of July weekend as 
more abundant moisture flows into the Borderland while a weak 
cold front enters the region. 


&& 


Discussion... 
easterly winds continue to advect modest amounts of moisture at 
low levels into southern New Mexico and West Texas but aloft high 
pressure was centered over Utah with an associated ridge extending 
to the southwest into the County Warning Area. Circulation around the high 
includes northeast winds at middle levels which have pushed warm dry 
air aloft into the region. Thus air mass is only marginally 
unstable most areas this afternoon with convection confined mainly 
to the higher mountains. Models suggest an upper wave will drop 
southward into the region later tonight however with isolated to 
scattered convection expected across the entire area. Dcapes 
values above 1100 j/kg suggest risk of damaging downdrafts with 
any storms 


Tuesday through Wednesday upper high center will drift slowly to 
the west with ridge extending across northwest to southeast New 
Mexico. Warm air and subsidence aloft will consequently continue 
to inhibit convection with most of the County Warning Area remaining dry except 
for isolated mainly mountain storms. Dewpoint depressions around 
50 indicate any storms that do develop have the potential to 
produce strong downbursts. 


On Thursday the western extension of a weakening/dissipating cold 
front will drop southward into the County Warning Area with lingering weak surface 
trough remaining over the area into Sunday. With surface high 
pressure over East Texas this pattern will induce mainly east to 
southeast winds across much of southern New Mexico/West Texas 
with advection of more abundant moisture. Thus by Friday morning 
surface dewpoints rise into the 50s and lower 60s while 
precipitable water increases to around 1.3 to 1.5 inches. Air mass 
will also become more unstable with MUCAPES around 700 to 1400 
j/kg. Lifting will be provided from both upslope flow plus low 
level convergence induced by the trough and this will bring an 
increase in convection Thursday through Saturday. The high amounts 
of moisture plus slow storm motion vectors may enhance the risk of 
heavy rainfall for the Holiday weekend so situation should be 
monitored. 


&& 


Aviation...valid 30/00z-01/00z... 
a minor disturbance aloft will drop south into the forecast area this 
afternoon and into tonight brining scattered showers and thunderstorms. Sct070-090 scattered- 
broken 100-140 sct-bkn200-250. (00z-16z:bkn060cb 3sm +tsra vrb35g47kts 
bldu vcnty) gnl surface winds north-northeast-east-southeast 7-13 kts. After 16z: sct080 sct120 
sct250 winds southeast 5-10 kts. 


&& 


Fire weather... high pressure aloft will again somewhat limit 
thunderstorms over the area with isolated storms over lowlands and 
scattered storms over the mountains through midweek. Some moderate 
to heavy rain amounts will be possible in isolated areas. Wind gusts 
from stronger storms could exceed 50 miles per hour. By Friday into the weekend 
moisture will increase and with a weakening high pressure system the 
environment will be set for scattered showers and thunderstorms area 
wide. Periods of heavy rainfall with localized flooding will be 
possible. Temperatures through the week will range from near to a 
little above normal.
