NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ALBUQUERQUE NM
655 AM MDT THU MAY 21 2015

.DISCUSSION...
THE BACKDOOR COLD FRONT HAS PUSHED WEST TO FARMINGTON AND GRANTS.
ABUNDANT MOISTURE IN THE FRONTAL LAYER IS RESULTING IN EXCELLENT
HUMIDITY RECOVERY CENTRAL AND EAST THIS MORNING...AND GENERALLY
GOOD TO FAIR WEST OF THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE. TODAY`S TEMPERATURES
WILL BE WELL BELOW NORMAL EAST...BELOW NORMAL CENTRAL AND CLOSER
TO NORMAL WEST...THOUGH STILL BELOW. THE BEST CHANCES FOR DECENT
LIGHTNING ACTIVITY THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING WILL BE ALONG THE
CONTINENTAL DIVIDE...ESPECIALLY BETWEEN GRANTS...CUBA AND CHAMA.
THE AIRMASS EAST OF THE CENTRAL MOUNTAIN CHAIN WILL BE TOO STABLE
FOR THUNDER...BUT SPOTTY WETTING RAIN IS POSSIBLE THERE. FRIDAY
WILL BE DRIER AND WARMER OVERALL COMPARED TO TODAY...WITH MINIMUM
RELATIVE HUMIDITIES EXCEEDING CRITICAL THRESHOLD ACROSS MUCH OF
THE WEST AND LOWER RIO GRANDE VALLEY. A FEW THUNDERSTORMS MAY
TRIGGER ON THE DRYLINE ACROSS THE EASTERN PLAINS FRIDAY EVENING.
DAYTIME TEMPERATURES WILL PERSIST THROUGH THE WEEKEND WITH AN
UNSETTLED WEATHER PATTERN...BUT TEMPERATURES WILL TREND UP NEXT
WEEK AND APPROACH NORMAL READINGS FOR LATE MAY. ANOTHER WETTING
EVENT MAY BE SHAPING UP FOR THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK.
