Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service El Paso Tx/Santa Teresa NM
248 AM MDT Mon Oct 21 2019

.SYNOPSIS...
West to northwest winds will bring seasonably warm dry weather and
mostly sunny skies across southern New Mexico and west Texas today
through Wednesday. A rather strong cold front will move through
the region causing cooler below normal temperatures Thursday and
Friday. High pressure aloft followed by westerly winds will
produce more dry weather with warming temperatures next weekend.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
Slightly cooler air has advected into southern New Mexico and
west Texas behind a weak cold front tonight. For today through
Wednesday west to northwest winds both at the surface and aloft
will transport dry air mass into the region with subsidence aloft
and abundant sunshine bringing a slow warming trend.

On Thursday a deepening upper trough will move across the Rockies
and into the plains with an associated Canadian cold front
pushing to the southwest through New Mexico and west Texas.
Stronger east to northeast winds behind the front will advect
cooler air mass from east to west with frontal passage occurring
during the morning and early afternoon across the CWA. Thus much
of the area may experience their high temperatures for the day
before noon. Marginally windy conditions may also exist along a
few western slope locations. High temperatures will fall to
around 5 to 10 degrees below normal Thursday with highs 10 to 15
degrees below normal Friday.

Upper ridge will move over the area Saturday followed by a
strengthening zonal Sunday and Monday. These trends will sustain
dry weather and support warming temperatures during this time.
