Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service El Paso Tx/Santa Teresa NM
259 PM MDT THU MAY 26 2016

.SYNOPSIS...
An upper level storm system will pass through the area overnight,
with gusty winds continuing into the early evening hours. Lighter
winds and slightly cooler temperatures will be the rule for
Friday. Light winds and near normal temperatures will persist
through the holiday weekend.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
An upper level low just south of the Four Corners will lift into
southeastern Colorado by morning. This system will continue to
bring breezy southwest winds to the area through the remainder of
the afternoon. Winds will be lighter in the wake of this system
tomorrow, but temperatures will drop to a few degrees below
normal.

Dry southwesterly winds aloft will return for the weekend as
another trough digs into southern California and cuts off.
Temperatures will hover around normal through the weekend and
into early next week.

The upper low will be mostly dry as it finally passes to the south
of the area mid-week. A few isolated thunderstorms (possibly dry
lightning) may affect the higher terrain of the Gila Region as a
weak cold front drifts in from the north.

&&

.AVIATION...27/00Z-28/00Z.
P6SM SKC-FEW100 thru period. West winds 15-20G30KTS thru 03Z and
10- 15 knots after 16Z. Winds will be W to NW AOB 12 knots between
03Z and 16Z.

&&

.FIRE WEATHER...
Upper low will be moving through the four corners region this
evening with westerly flow setting up behind it. Temperatures will
still be slightly below normal Friday but start to rebound Saturday
and remain near normal into early next week. Winds will be on the
decrease starting Friday as well and continue through period, but
relative humidities will remain in the single digits for most
locations with poor recoveries. Some moisture will try to move into
the region midweek with some mountain showers and thunderstorms
possible.
