Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Albuquerque nm 509 am MDT Sat Oct 25 2014 Aviation... 12z taf cycle upper level ridge shifting eastward today. Southwest winds may become breezy at times after 18z as Lee surface trough develops. VFR. && Previous discussion...330 am MDT Sat Oct 25 2014... synopsis... an upper level ridge of high pressure will nudge eastward today while above normal and even near-record high temperatures are observed across much of northern and central New Mexico. Mostly clear skies today will gradually give way to increasing cloud cover from the west tonight and into Sunday. A few showers and thunderstorms may produce some sprinkles and light rain Sunday while stronger winds aloft become mixed down to the surface. In addition to the breezy conditions...temperatures will stay above average. A few showers and thunderstorms will be possible again on Monday...mostly in north central to northeastern New Mexico while a cold front approaches the state. Once the front invades the state Monday night...a cooler day will be in store on Tuesday...but high temperatures will still be close to average. The middle of next week will remain dry and tranquil. && Discussion... another warm and potentially record-breaking day will be on hand today. Pressure heights aloft are still expected to reduce by a few decameters as the ridge axis shifts into Texas. Clear skies will hold and breezes should remain light to moderate with the Lee side surface trough not expected to deepen much today. Clouds in the middle to high levels of the troposphere will approach nm from the west and southwest tonight while a weak short wave trough from the subtropical Pacific treks over nm. A more potent trough driven by the polar jet will then begin to approach the central rockies on Sunday. The associated flux of meager middle to upper level moisture could be enough for a few stray showers and storms...mostly likely of the virga variety with minimal rain making it to the ground...but gusty winds accompanying on Sunday. In addition to the convectively enhanced winds...the deepening Lee side surface low will couple with a stronger gradient...and winds aloft will mix down to the surface Sunday afternoon...inducing breezy to windy conditions on more of a synoptic scale. Temperatures will not climb as high in some western zones Sunday afternoon...but all areas will still exceed climatological averages by 6 to 18 degrees. Have kept some probability of precipitation Sunday night and Monday morning...but dynamics aloft look rather weak and would think minimal activity would be able to survive after dark. As the polar jet carries the trough...deepening into a low...over the Canadian border...trailing short wave energy will pass over the central rockies and will just skirt the nm/Colorado border. Some slight chance probability of precipitation have been left in the north central to northeastern zones to account for any perturbed northwest flow in the wake of this passing system on Monday and Monday night. In addition...the cold front will bring a northerly wind shift with cooler than average readings in the east and more seasonable temperatures in the west. Some freezing temperatures will then be possible Tuesday night and Wednesday morning...but the remainder of the middle week period looks to remain dry with another ridge passing overhead as temperatures climb back above normal. 52 && Fire weather... transition to zonal flow today and strengthens Sunday. Vent rates will improve today and more so Sunday. Highs through the weekend will be well above average...and some near record values possible again today and Sunday. Middle level moisture increase Sunday could spark a few dry showers and storms west and central. Potential for localized critical conditions mainly northeast quarter Sunday but overnight relative humidity recoveries will continue to be at least good. A front Monday will cool highs down...especially in the east where they fall to slightly below average Tuesday. Dry weather with a warming trend and generally poor ventilation under a building ridge aloft forecast for middle to late next week. Upper ridge waves goodbye to New Mexico today as flow transitions to zonal and strengthens Sunday. Some near record highs possible again today as some westerly breezes pick up over the east central. Models underdid the drier dew points observed Friday in the western mts so made some tweaks downward for this afternoon...which lead to some below 15 percent min relative humidity values northwest and northeast. However...relative humidity recoveries should be good most locales tonight. Vent rates good or better majority of the forecast area today...and improve markedly Sunday. Winds Sunday into Monday still somewhat of a forecast problem...possibly due in part to what appears to be more than one disturbance during this time frame. Strongest 700 mb winds indicated 12z Sunday and again 12z Monday...with 40kt or more along the central Montana chain 12z Monday. Suspect there could be some stronger downslope winds early Monday than what can be populated from models at the present time. Otherwise models still want to increase dew points for Sunday except the European model (ecmwf) which is drier and trended in that direction. Still potential for isolated dry convection west and central as some middle level moisture passes overhead. Some localized critical conditions possible across the northeast plains Sunday afternoon. Front to drop into the plains Monday with cooler temperatures by Tuesday. Vent rates remain generally excellent Monday then are mostly fair to poor Tuesday through Thursday as the upper ridge rebuilds over the southern rockies. Some improvement is possible by Friday depending how quickly the ridge is shunted eastward by the incoming system along the West Coast. 00z European model (ecmwf) is slower...so both models suggest it will be dry through the end of the work week. && Abq watches/warnings/advisories... none. && $$
