NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Albuquerque nm 
1104 am MST Friday Feb 5 2016 


Aviation... 
18z taf cycle 
VFR conditions expected across most of the area during the next 24 
hours. Exceptions include localized areas across the NE corner of 
the state through the early afternoon due to snowfall. The other 
being across northwest areas late tonight. Based on satellite 
imagery...an area of low ceilings developed to the east of fmn this 
morning. There is some indication another area of low ceilings would 
develop and eventually shift towards fmn late tonight. Will 
monitor that trend closely. Used vcfg in the terminal forecast at 
this time. Gusts to near 30 knots at tcc early/middle afternoon before 
lowering.

Previous discussion...315 am MST Friday Feb 5 2016... 
synopsis... 


A disturbance will pass over north central and northeast New Mexico 
today...bringing a reinforcement of cooler air...gusty north to 
northeast winds and some meager snow accumulations to the sangre Delaware 
cristo mountains and far northeast New Mexico. Dry conditions with a 
warming trend will then dominate as a ridge of high pressure builds 
over the western United States...and steers storms away from New 
Mexico through much of next week. Overall...temperatures will reach 
seasonal values or above by next Monday or Tuesday. 


&& 


Discussion... 


Another day...another disturbance. Gusty north to northwest winds to 
dominate the central and east...but overall not anticipating speeds 
will reach Wind Advisory criteria. Otherwise there could be some 
mostly minor accumulations of snow in the sangre Delaware cristo mts and 
along the far northeast...such as Raton Pass/Sierra Grande where 
they could see possibly an inch or two...but not thinking it will be 
widespread enough for any winter type highlights. Hrrr does suggest 
some very light precipitation farther south along the central Montana 
chain...as well as the European model (ecmwf) which paints isolated measurable 
amounts in the east central...both where current grids have less 
than 10 percent probability of precipitation today. So later shifts may need to monitor for 
any precipitation trending towards greater areal coverage. 


Temperatures tonight plummet again for the northern mts...but 
guidance doesn/T indicate it will be quite as cold as Thursday 
morning lows were. Another dry wave sends a front into New Mexico 
Sunday but cooling effects more limited to the northeast and east 
Central Plains. 


Thereafter...dry weather with a warming trend will dominate next 
week. Temperatures finally rebound to normal or above by Tuesday 
overall. Winds should be light. Late next week...the GFS allows 
subtropical moisture to be drawn into New Mexico ahead of a weak 
trough stretched through the Great Basin. The European model (ecmwf) depicts more of 
a clipper type system...drier and cooler. 


&& 


Fire weather... 


One quick-moving short wave trough swung through northern nm earlier 
last evening...and a second one is quickly following on its heels 
and will cross over northeast nm by late morning. A cold front is 
also dropping south into nm...and this will bring a temporary 
cessation to the warming trend. Some lower-based clouds have 
developed over the northern mountains and isolated to scattered 
light snow showers will be possible over the higher terrain of north 
central nm...gradually extending into northeastern nm by middle day. 
Any additional snowfall accumulation will be light with only a 
couple of inches foreseen near the Raton ridge/pass. As the cold 
front spills southward into the area...some windy conditions with 
gusts of 40 to 45 miles per hour will be possible across the eastern plains of 
nm. It will be here where ventilation rates will be boosted...but 
elsewhere expect smoke dispersion rates to remain in the poor 
category today. 


As the flow aloft shifts more west northwest on Saturday...it will 
relax and become more stable. This will lead to rising pressure 
heights and consequently warmer temperatures with saturdays highs 
rising 5 to 15 degrees above todays. The eastern plains of nm will 
observe the largest gains with near normal readings. Stiff 
surface/20ft breezes will still take shape in the central 
mountains/Highlands Saturday afternoon...and with the warmer 
temperatures will also come lower humidity. Patches of central nm 
and most of the eastern zones will observe minimum humidity of 10-20 
percent Saturday afternoon...but the area of stronger winds in the 
Central Highlands does not appear to be juxtaposed over any critical 
relative humidity areas at this time. Poor ventilation is currently forecast for 
all but the far east Central Plains. 


Then the flow returns to a more unidirectional component from the 
northwest hosting yet another disturbance aloft. This perturbation 
should pass to the north and east of nm early Sunday...but still the 
northwest winds aloft will increase along and immediately east of 
the Central Mountain chain of nm. Another surface cold front will 
also slip into eastern parts of the state by the middle of the day 
Sunday...but this frontal passage does not appear to disrupt the 
forecast area from reaching near-climatological averages for early 
February. After Sunday...the theme for next week will be a 
dry...tranquil...and warmer pattern. Ventilation rates will 
suffer...but temperatures will creep well above normal.
