Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Albuquerque nm 
1035 am MST Thursday Nov 27 2014 


Aviation... 
18z taf cycle 
VFR conditions will prevail for the next 24 hours. Cirrus should 
increase from north to south...especially overnight. 
Otherwise...some gusts up to 25kt will be possible along/east of 
the Central Mountain chain this afternoon. A similar situation will be 
in store for Friday afternoon as well.

Previous discussion...257 am MST Thursday Nov 27 2014... 
synopsis... 
spectacular weather conditions are on tap for the remainder of this 
week. The one exception will be typical breezy conditions from the 
Central Mountain chain eastward across the plains. Temperatures will 
warm up significantly through Sunday. A few areas will near record 
highs Friday and Saturday...particularly from Las Vegas to Santa 
Rosa...Tucumcari...Fort Sumner...and Clovis. A more active pattern 
is possible for the middle to latter half of next week...however no 
significant storm system is on the horizon. 


&& 


Discussion... 
the 700-300mb layer winds have tapered off dramatically in the past 
24 hours as a 584dm 500 mb ridge crests into southwestern nm. The weak 
northerly wind shift across the plains from Wednesday is veering to 
south/southwest flow with Lee troughing deepening along the Front 
Range. As a result temperatures will trend 10-20f warmer today for the east 
central and northeast plains. The upper ridge will flatten tonight 
through Friday with 700-500mb layer winds increasing to near 30 kts. 
This will increase the Lee trough through Friday and lead to well 
above normal temperatures. Record highs are in order for the area from Las 
Vegas to Santa Rosa...Tucumcari...ft Sumner and Clovis Friday. Very 
little change is expected Friday night and Saturday with more record 
high temperatures. 700mb temperatures of +10c over the plains will push +2 Standard 
deviations above climatology. Windy conditions will accompany the warmer 
temperatures for the east...particularly Saturday as 700-500mb layer winds 
increase to 35-45 kts. 


By Sunday...temperatures will cool a few degrees with weak cold advection 
moving in from the west. Winds will remain elevated and temperatures above 
normal most areas. The next forecast challenge will be the timing 
of a back door cold front over the east. Model guidance is coming 
into better agreement for Sunday night/Monday. This will be a dry 
cold frontal passage and temperatures Monday will trend 15 to 25f colder 
than Sunday. 


Unfortunately model agreement with a potentially more active weather 
pattern for middle to late next week is even worse than it was 24 hours 
ago. A highly complex pattern currently over the Gulf of Alaska and 
an increasingly active area of convection over the equatorial eastern 
Pacific will battle out through next week. The big change noted with 
the bulk of extended guidance is retreat of the polar vortex over 
eastern North America. This may be the first indication of a larger 
scale pattern change with potential for a more active storm track 
to develop across the southwest U.S.

Fire weather... 
the dry weather pattern will continue through the Holiday weekend 
with above normal temperatures. There is a decreasing chance for 
precipitation and/or wind Tuesday into the middle of the coming work 
week...and models are not agreeing very well on this possibility. 


As northwest flow aloft becomes more zonal and a Lee trough 
strengthens...temperatures will generally continue to trend upward 
through Friday when highs should peak around 9 to 26 degrees above 
normal. Record high readings are expected across east central areas 
Friday afternoon. Temperatures will begin a slow trend downward 
Saturday...but well above normal highs will continue through Sunday 
in the east and through Tuesday out west. Humidities through Friday 
will generally trend downward...before rebounding most places 
Saturday through Monday in response to the cooling temperatures. 
Critically low humidities are expected in many lower elevation 
locations Friday. They will become most widespread on Saturday 
before lingering in pockets across the east on Sunday. The zonal 
flow aloft and Stout Lee trough should induce sustained west winds 
in the 20 to 30 miles per hour range down the I-40 corridor east of the central 
mountains Saturday and to a lesser extent Sunday. With the low 
humidities a few to several hours of critical fire weather 
conditions are expected...but coverage may be limited mainly to 
northern parts of the east Central Plains zone. 


A back door cold front is forecast to sag into the plains Sunday 
night and linger through Monday. This should cause a marked decrease 
in high temperatures by 10 to 25 degrees in the east Monday 
afternoon...but a Lee trough will redevelop Tuesday with downslope 
warming to above normal readings again. Humidities will also spike 
upward across the east on Monday...only to fall again with the 
downslope flow on Tuesday. 


Its looking less likely that there will be a significant wetting 
precipitation event Tuesday into the middle part of the coming work 
week...but there could be some wind. The latest GFS model run 
follows a similar pattern to recent European model (ecmwf) runs by weakening a West 
Coast trough and passing it northeastward over the central rockies 
and north of nm. Its Worth noting that the timing of the upper level 
troughs is very different between the two models...so its difficult 
to say when there may be any precipitation or wind.
