NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service El Paso Texas/Santa Teresa nm 
329 PM MDT Monday may 25 2015 


Synopsis... 
a ridge of high pressure will persist just off the West Coast of the 
U.S. Through this weekend. Ahead of this ridge several troughs aloft 
will push across New Mexico. One trough sweeps across tonight... 
giving the mountains a slight chance of thunderstorms. Another 
trough will move across Wednesday night and Thursday...giving areas 
east of the Rio Grande Valley a chance of thunderstorms. Yet another 
trough moves southeast through the area Saturday afternoon. This 
will bring a chance of thunderstorms to areas east of El Paso 
Saturday night and Sunday. Temperatures will remain near or slightly 
above normal. 


&& 


Discussion... 
fairly consistent but active pattern over the next week. On the 
large scale...upper ridge will remain just off the West Coast. 
Several upper troughs either slide down the front side of the ridge 
and across the County Warning Area...or Cut Through the ridge over the County Warning Area. WV 
imagery shows the first trough now just entering northwest New Mexico. Some 
thunderstorms forming just north of the County Warning Area but visible satellite 
shows extensive cumulus/towering cumulus north of a line from Silver City to 
Alamogordo. Will keep low probability of precipitation in for this evening across northern 
tier of zones. 


Next upper trough cuts through the ridge and moves toward the County Warning Area 
Wednesday. As the flow backs around south and southeast...the 
dryline will be drawn into the eastern County Warning Area. GFS and NAM differ on 
distance dryline is able to penetrate...GFS being more bullish. For 
now kept probability of precipitation to the County Warning Area east of El Paso and let some more model 
runs come in before committing further west. Some of these storms 
could become strong as decent shear environment exists...along with 
some MUCAPES of 1000-2000 j/kg. 


Trough passes through Thursday evening to end storm threat. However 
another upper low drops down from the northwest...dragging another 
trough through the County Warning Area Saturday night. Another shot at thunderstorms 
Saturday night and Sunday with this. Old GFS runs had kept the 
dryline moisture over the far east. This morning's run now brings 
the dryline west across most or all of the County Warning Area. Will keep the probability of precipitation 
east of El Paso but will have to re-evaluate models over the next 
couple runs to see any consistency. 


Temperatures will remain at or slightly above normal through the 
forecast period. 


&& 


Aviation...valid 26/00z-27/00z. 
VFR conditions for all sites with northwest to west winds between 10 and 20 
knots. Slight chance of very isolated showers and thunderstorms in 
area mountains between 18z and 00z. MVFR ceilings...reduced 
visibility and strong out flow winds could occur near thunderstorms. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
west to southwest flow aloft will bring warmer mostly dry weather to 
southern New Mexico and West Texas through Wednesday. This afternoon 
and evening isolated High Mountain thunderstorms could occur. The 
main threats with these storms will be dry lighting and strong wind 
gusts. Wednesday afternoon into Thursday night eastern fire 
weather zones will have a chance for wetting rain as a low 
pressure system from the west passes the Borderland. Drier air will 
follow on Friday before a weak backdoor cold front tries to generate 
more precipitation across the area on Saturday. Min relative humidity values today 
will be in the lower teens for the southern fire weather zones and 
in the 20s to 30s for the northern fire weather zones. Tomorrow min 
relative humidity values will drop into the lower to middle teens across the entire 
region. Vent rates will remain very good to excellent through the 
week.
