NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Albuquerque nm 
issued by National Weather Service Lubbock Texas 
1027 am MST Monday Nov 24 2014 


Aviation... 
18z taf cycle 
wind speeds have been slow to ramp up this afternoon at taf sites 
but still expect to see some gusty winds at several locations. 
Strongest wind speeds will remain up around Farmington and at some 
of the higher elevation sites as a weak upper level trough continues 
to move over northern nm. Wind speeds will decrease after sunset except 
at taf sites east of the mountains where a cold front will move 
south after sunset. Klvs...ktcc...and krow should see wind speeds 
pick up out of the north overnight but will quickly return to the 
west to northwest after sunrise Tuesday.

Previous discussion...434 am MST Monday Nov 24 2014... 
aviation... 
12z taf cycle 
a secondary upper level trough will race southeastward over the area today 
returning snow showers and occasional Montana obscurations to the north mts 
through tonight. A cold front will also dive S and southeastward today. Winds 
will probably become gusty with the front in most places this afternoon 
and linger into the evening east of the Continental Divide. The strongest winds 
should be found northwest of Yeso to Farmington where gusts in the 25-35 
knots range will be common. Gusts may approach 45 knots during middle afternoon at 
kfmn.

Previous discussion...314 am MST Monday Nov 24 2014... 
synopsis... 
another short wave trough will swing through nm later today into 
tonight. This will reinforce the chilly air and bring a little 
more snow to the northern mountains into the far northeast. Breezy 
to windy conditions will still hang around as well. A cold night 
tonight will be followed by a chilly Tuesday but with less wind. 
The remainder of the week will be dry and milder with lots of 
sunshine. Thanksgiving and black Friday will be quite pleasant. 
The weekend looks dry as well although a back door cold front 
could reach the eastern plains later in the weekend with a shot 
of cooler air. 


&& 


Discussion... 
mostly clear and cold conditions exist in the wake of yesterdays 
vigorous disturbance. Another short wave trough will dive southeast 
into nm later today into tonight. It will be able to squeeze a bit 
of moisture out of the dry air and produce some snow showers over 
the northern mountains and far northeast. Another shot of chilly 
air will follow this trough making for a cold night tonight and 
chilly but dry day on Tuesday. Winds will kick up again today but 
not as strong as Sunday. But it will be breezy to windy from the 
northwest to the southeast...a Farmington to Santa Rosa and Fort 
Sumner line. Winds may reach Wind Advisory levels at Farmington 
and Clines Corners...but not for long enough or widespread enough 
to warrant issuing an advisory. 


Tuesday will be dry with less wind and lots of sunshine. It will 
remain chilly though with highs still below normal. Temperatures 
will be several degrees higher than today and with less wind it 
will not feel nearly as chilly as today. 


The dry and warming trend will continue for the rest of the week. 
Highs will be near to a little above normal Wednesday then well 
above normal for Thanksgiving and black Friday. Add in plenty of 
sunshine each day and generally light winds and we end up with 
spectacular weather for the start of the Holiday period. 


A trough will be passing well north of nm this weekend but it may 
be able to drop a back door cold front into the east. The GFS has 
it arriving Saturday night while the European waits until Sunday. 
From this Vantage Point it looks dry behind the front with cooler 
temperatures the main impact on Sunday across primarily the east. 
Highs would still be a little above normal though. 


So a cold start to the week but a mild finish with great traveling 
weather for the Holiday period. Chj 


&& 


Fire weather... 
a secondary upper level trough will cross in northwest flow aloft with 
breezy to windy conditions today and some light snow showers in 
the northern mountains. Tuesday Onward...a weaker dry northwest flow 
aloft will persist before becoming zonal this weekend. 


Northwest winds will generally be a lot weaker today than they were 
Sunday...but gusts should still reach the 30 to 40 miles per hour range 
northwest of Delaware Baca County through The Four Corners. There could 
even be a few 50 miles per hour gusts around Farmington if clouds can break 
for a time during the afternoon. Elsewhere...some weaker gusts 
are also likely as another cold front dives south and eastward 
across the forecast area. 


After high temperatures trend a few to several degrees downward in 
many locations today...readings will trend upward each day for the 
remainder of the work week. In general min humidities should also 
trend downward daily...except for a brief increase in humidities 
Wednesday as a weak upper level trough tries to briefly amplify 
over the area. It May Draw a back door cold front into the plains 
as well. 


Vent rates look good today with the lingering wind...but they will 
trend downward Tuesday. Widespread poor ventilation is expected 
Wednesday and Thursday...then pockets of poor ventilation are 
expected through the weekend. After a lull in winds late in the 
work week...speeds should get gusty again along and just east of 
the Central Mountain chain Friday through the weekend as the flow 
aloft turns zonal and a Lee surface trough develops. 44
