NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service El Paso Texas/Santa Teresa nm 
236 PM MDT Sat Apr 25 2015 


Synopsis... 
a strong upper low will move into The Four Corners region Sunday 
and onto the Southern Plains by Monday. This system will bring 
strong winds to the area Sunday along with a chance for 
precipitation. Best rain chances are over the Gila and sacramentos 
with even snow possible above 8000 feet. Temperatures through 
Wednesday will run at least 5 to 10 degrees below normal with a 
rebound expected going into next weekend. Winds will not be much 
of an impact after Sunday for the upcoming week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
models in the short term have trended toward a similar 
solution with developing upper low...but differ on how far south 
precipitation will make it Sunday with GFS furthest north. Tonight expect 
clouds to increase from northwest to southeast with a few showers possible in 
the Gila region...mainly after 06z. Winds look to remain fairly well 
coupled so should see slightly warmer low temperatures than last 
night for most locations. On Sunday...the upper low currently 
over the Pacific northwest will be redeveloping around The Four Corners 
region. As it does...a surface low will be intensifying along 
eastern nm/Texas border. Expect windy conditions to develop across the 
County Warning Area with advisory speeds expected everywhere except far north and 
west. Looking at the amount of energy coming down the back side of 
the system and model biases...think the GFS may be a little too 
far north with placement of upper low. Should see precipitation spreading 
across the mountain areas tomorrow morning with plenty of dynamics 
moving through. May see a few inches of snow above 8000 feet in 
the Gila region. Think at least isolated showers will occur over 
the south...although strong west winds do not usually produce much 
in the way of measurable precipitation. High temperatures will be 
about 7 to 10 degrees cooler tomorrow than today. 


As the upper low moves toward the Texas Panhandle Sun night...a 
northerly flow will setup across the area. Wraparound moisture 
will continue over northern zones...but particularly think sacs 
have best shot from this time on. May see another inch or 2 of 
snow around Cloudcroft by Monday morning. Another piece of energy 
will round the low during the day Monday and keep some probability of precipitation 
going...again mainly mountain zones. Instability will be weak but 
a few lightning strikes are possible. Northerly flow continues 
into Wednesday with temperatures remaining below normal. 


An upper ridge will build over the region for the end of the week 
with high temperatures getting about 5 degrees above normal by Friday 
into Sat. Previous models of the GFS kept some low level moisture 
trapped under ridge with daily thunderstorm chances...but latest 
run has backed off and European model (ecmwf) is in decent agreement so kept 
forecast dry. 


&& 


Aviation...valid 26/00z-27/00z... 
all taf sites sky clear-sct250 with winds 25020-25g35kt through 06z. After 
06z in northern portion of County Warning Area skies scattered-bkn060-080 with isolated 
-shra bkn040-050 through 15z...then numerous rain showers or thunderstorms and rain bkn030-040 in 
Gila region. Winds will increase around 16z to 25025-30g35kt. In 
southern portion of area after 06z skies sct080-090 with isolated to scattered 
-tsra bkn040-060...winds will also increase around 16z to 
28030g40kt. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
this afternoon into the evening dry and breezy conditions will 
continue as the next strong storm system approaches the region from 
the Pacific northwest. West-southwest winds will dominate with wind 
speeds between 20 and 25 miles per hour and gusts up to 35 miles per hour. Relative 
humidity values will be just above critical thresholds. A few 
hours of critical fire weather conditions are possible across parts 
of the County Warning Area late this afternoon. 


Early Sunday morning a strong upper level low pressure system will 
move into New Mexico bringing strong winds and a chance of wetting 
rain to all fire weather zones. Winds are expected to reach 25 to 
35 miles per hour. Relative humidity values on Sunday will be in the middle 20s 
in The Lowlands. In the Gila WIlderness min relative humidity values will be in 
the 30 to 40 percent range and in the Sacramento Mountains min relative humidity 
values will be in the 35 to 45 percent range. 


Monday the upper low begins to move out the area. Tuesday trialing 
moisture could produce precipitation in the mountains. Wednesday 
through late next week the weather will be warm and dry as high 
pressure sets up but winds do not look to be an issue.
