NWS Forecaster Discussion

Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Albuquerque nm 
1032 am MST Tuesday Dec 1 2015 

18z taf cycle 
strong northwest winds near mountain top level across the sangre Delaware 
cristo mts will gradually shift south and decrease through the 
afternoon. Otherwise...vrf conditions under dry northwest flow aloft 
expected next 24 hours. 



Previous discussion...301 am MST Tuesday Dec 1 2015... 
a quiet work week remains in store across the land of enchantment. 
Temperatures will gradually warm through Friday...though dry 
conditions at the surface and clear will lead to chilly nights. A 
storm system does seem to be on the horizon for the weekend which 
will drop temperatures once again and perhaps bring some 
precipitation to northern and eastern New Mexico. 


warming trend continues through Friday. Northwest flow and a weak 
trough that reinforces the cooler air today will give way to a ridge 
by Thursday. Thursday and Friday should see high temperatures near 
to perhaps slightly above normal. The GFS shows a weak back door 
front on Thursday as a result of a stronger trough sliding down the 
front side of the ridge. Given that no other models are showing 
this...have discounted this and the cooler temperatures it forecasts as an 

The GFS and European model (ecmwf) are not in as good of agreement regarding the 
weekend system as they were this time yesterday. European model (ecmwf) remains the 
most consistent however...thus have largely sided with this model. 
Still appears that a weakly closed low will cross northern nm over 
the weekend...and an associated back door cold front will slide down 
the plains. Moisture and abundant lift...both within the core of the 
system and brought with the cold front...will likely result in rain 
and snow across much of northern and eastern nm. However...given 
how dry the airmass is preceding this system...and the short 
residence time this system will have over nm...there will likely 
be a short window of precipitation...thus amounts are not expected to be 
that high. Fwiw...the GFS has waffled to a much stronger...slower 
and wetter system that crosses southern nm. This solution does not 
appear to have much backing from its ensemble members. 

Models do show a follow up system that arrives on Monday...and yet 
another system that arrives late Tuesday into Wednesday. Neither 
model is showing much precipitation with either system this morning...but 
suspect that may waffle around before too long. 



Fire weather... 
widespread poor ventilation rates through the weekend...especially 
Wednesday through Friday. 

Northwest flow aloft to weaken today and Wednesday with a transient 
ridge of high pressure moving overhead Thursday. Increasing 
southwest flow aloft Friday ahead of a deepening storm system that 
will impact the state over the weekend. 

Very dry airmass in place. Poor to fair and locally good ventilation 
rates today. Sunshine will be filtered by high clouds mainly this 
morning. Temperatures will be a bit milder than Monday but still 
below normal. Another cold night tonight thanks to the very dry 
airmass...light winds and clear skies. 

Vent rates will be poor areawide Wednesday through Friday. Strength 
of the valley...basin temperature inversions will increase each 
morning as winds decrease and temperatures aloft gradually modify. 
High temperatures will gradually modify and be close to normal 
Thursday and Friday. A weak back door cold front tonight and perhaps 
another one Wednesday night will have little impact on the sensible 

Models continue at odds on what to do with the weekend storm. GFS is 
now slower and farther south with the developing closed low. European 
has been more consistent and will lean towards its solution. Showers 
and High Mountain snow on Saturday will turn over to mostly snow 
Saturday night into Sunday...still mixed with some rain in the 
valleys and eastern plains. Temperatures will lower over the weekend 
as they fall back below normal. Vent rates over the weekend will be 
mostly poor. High temperatures mostly below normal. 

A quick hitting short wave trough will cross nm Monday with little 
moisture to work with. Expecting only a few northern mountain snow 
showers. Another storm system will arrive Tuesday...stronger than 
mondays trough. GFS slower and farther west with a closed low forming 
over New Mexico Tuesday night...while the European model has the 
closed low over the OK...Texas panhandles.
