.DISCUSSION...
Fog has mostly lifted across the area and this morning`s thick
saturated low levels are becoming more shallow. Lessening clouds
overnight will be a good set-up for the redevelopment of fog, some
probably dense, across the PB/SE NM which will tend to persist until
15Z/Tue-18Z/Tue. For now we will not issue a dense fog advisory,
however we think one will be likely after 4 AM. Tue abundant
sunshine is expected in the PM and as such temps will warm rapidly
into the L70S-N80 in most areas, especially with sw wind across
the west. There will again be risk for fog to redevelop Wed AM,
especially across the east CWFA where low level mstr will hold in
place. Meanwhile a weak cold front will move to near the I-20
corridor around 15Z/Wed. Post-frontal air is drier, but the
trajectories keep the U30-M40 dwpnts in the w including SE NM.
Winds will quickly veer se and low level mstr will return to the
west overnight into Thur AM and yes low clouds/fog will be
possible across many areas. Even though it will be warmer Thur PM
mstr will not be scoured out, except in Davis/GDP Mtns/Eddy Co..
Underneath strong mid level flow low level mstr will finally get
pushed east Fri making Fri the warmest/windiest/driest day of the
7 day forecast. 40kts at 7h will favor high wind in the GDP Mtns
on Fri. This will all be ahead of a stronger cold front that will
move thru late Fri night and thus cooler wx will be the rule Sat
AM-Mon PM.
