NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Albuquerque nm 
343 am MDT Thursday Jul 2 2015 


Synopsis... 
as The Four Corners high shifts to the northwest and weakens 
somewhat today...a healthy crop of scattered to numerous showers 
and thunderstorms will develop around midday and move southward 
over valleys and basins during the late afternoon and evening. 
Localized heavy rainfall and small hail are likely from the 
stronger storms. With the upper high moving little and moisture 
rotating clockwise around the high...rounds of scattered 
afternoon and evening thunderstorms are in the offing for Friday 
through the Holiday weekend. This active weather pattern will 
continue into early next week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
relatively strong north-northwesterly flow aloft sent middle and upper level 
moisture southward through central New Mexico last evening. Light 
showers continue early this morning from the west side of abq eastward 
along Interstate 40 as deformation/stretching associated with the 
increasing northwesterly flow aloft continues to generate weak lift. Active 
day in store today with scattered to numerous thunderstorms as 
said deformation axis reorients itself over central nm with light 
and variable flow aloft near the Arizona line and 20kts of northerly flow 
aloft over far eastern nm. Several storms may train over the same area 
but expect most storms will be moving southward between 10-15kts and 
not expecting more than localized flash flooding. Models continue 
with idea of bringing in drier air aloft Friday but plenty of low 
level moisture will remain in place for scattered afternoon and 
evening thunderstorms Friday. 


Low levels remain plenty moist (pwats ~ 1.0 inch) for another 
round of scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms for the 
Fourth of July. Again...storms will be moving south between 
10-15kts...keeping flash flooding localized due to training. 
Cannot rule out a storm or two remaining fixed along the southeast slopes 
of the sangres with low level inflow light southeasterly. A speed maximum in northwest 
flow aloft expected to move through eastern nm Saturday evening could 
provide a natural fireworks show well after sunset there. 


Models continue idea of shifting the upper high center southeastward over 
nm Sunday. Plentiful low level moisture remains along with the 
fact that the highest heights associated with the high are 
forecast to be ~ 592 dm (-5c) which is plenty unstable if surface 
high temperatures are near average for early July. 


00z GFS and ecwmf both trending toward shifting the upper high 
over SW nm/Southeast Arizona Monday as opposed to earlier runs which pushed 
it east into West Texas. This new solution would shift the focus for 
storms to the Central Mountain chain eastward with more prevalent 
backdoor frontal passages. GFS and European model (ecmwf) start to differ 
Wednesday and Thursday on whether or not the upper high gets 
forced east over the Southern Plains or whether it remains anchored 
over eastern nm. At any rate...both GFS and European model (ecmwf) trend convective 
coverage down for the latter half of next week.

Fire weather... 
an increase in coverage of storms is forecast today 
and Friday as precipitable waters  continue to trend up and pressure heights trend 
down slightly. High temperatures will trend down through the end of 
the week thanks to additional cloud cover and some rain-cooling. 
Slow moving storms will bring soaking rains going into the 
weekend...favoring the higher terrain. 


The upper high center will move from over the Great Basin to over 
New Mexico by late in the weekend and into early next week...leading 
to an uptrend in temperatures and a down trend in chances for 
wetting rain. Sufficient moisture will remain in place for rounds of 
storms early next week...thanks in part to a backdoor front forecast 
to arrive on Monday. The 00z GFS and European model (ecmwf) show a similar synoptic 
pattern going through the end of next week...but the GFS keeps the 
middle level high centroid over New Mexico. Low forecaster confidence 
on whether or not the upper high will slide east of the area and a 
more traditional monsoon pattern will develop.

Aviation... 
06z taf cycle 
clusters and lines of storms are expected to continue sagging 
over northeastern to east central New Mexico through the early 
morning hours Thursday. Hefty downpours could temporarily reduce 
ceilings/visibility to the MVFR/IFR category...and gusty downburst 
winds to 45 knots will also accompany storms. The coverage and 
chances for storms will decrease south of Interstate 40...and much 
of the activity north of this corridor will likely diminish before 
02/1000utc. After a lull in activity during the late 
morning...new batches of storms will redevelop over much of 
northern and central New Mexico into Thursday afternoon and 
evening.
