New AVIATION

SYNOPSIS
Issued at 304 PM MDT Sat Apr 13 2024

Dry, seasonably warm, and breezy conditions will prevail this weekend across the area. Gusty southwest to west winds develop on Monday, creating dangerous critical fire weather conditions in central and eastern NM below snowpack. Winds remain strong into Tuesday, then decrease late in the week as temperatures soar to the highest values of the season thus far west of the central mountain chain. Below average temperatures, increased clouds, and a few showers are favored in eastern NM late week into the weekend.

SHORT TERM
(This evening through Sunday night)
Issued at 304 PM MDT Sat Apr 13 2024

Ridge axis is forecast to push east of NM tonight with southwest flow aloft moving overhead late tonight into Sunday morning. The increasing southwest flow aloft is in response to a closed low moving ashore over central CA Sunday morning. Sunday looks a good deal like today with high temperatures and mainly sunny skies.
Main change will be a slight increase in southwest breezes/winds for western NM Sunday afternoon. Main model trend from this morning's model suite was to bring in the upper low's wind field slightly faster and farther south than previous runs. Winds are not looking as strong for central and northern NM Monday afternoon, but still plenty strong south of I-40 and especially for the south central mountains and Ruidoso area Sunday night through Monday. Winds aloft ramp up after midnight Sunday night with strong southwest winds kicking in for the south central mountains several hours prior to sunrise Monday, continuing through the day.

LONG TERM
(Monday through Friday)
Issued at 304 PM MDT Sat Apr 13 2024

An upper-low will move across Utah on Monday, sending a cyclonically curved jet streak through New Mexico. 500-700mb mean winds will be greatest in the far southern portion of the CWA where deep mixing to 13kft will surely bring strong to damaging gusts down to the surface. These winds combined with several hours of sub-10% humidity will create widespread dangerous critical fire weather conditions in central and eastern NM (see fire wx discussion). Despite beneficial rainfall last week, blowing dust can be expected once again to east of dust sources, with the greatest coverage in Chaves county. A mostly dry Pacific cold front will sweep across the state from west to east on Tuesday as well, with the strongest gusts of the day likely occurring along the front's leading edge. There are still some model differences with frontal passage timing, but that will likely become more clear in the coming days. In northern NM, forcing could be just strong enough to generate a few showers near the CO border. LIs decrease to around -1C in the wake of the cold front so a few storms cannot be ruled out as well. Dry low levels will also support localized gusty winds near showers and storms. Gusty virga showers may extend into central and southwestern NM as well, but will struggle make it into eastern NM. A lee-side low in the TX Panhandle will allow windy conditions to continue into Tuesday, particularly in the typical windy areas along and just east of the central mountain chain.

Winds finally decrease Wednesday, but a very weak wave should help a brisk breeze persist through the day. Temperatures will be on the uptrend mid-week as heights rise. Temperatures could be pushing 80F across the northeast with mid-80s along the middle and lower RGV.
Cluster analysis shows that there is a high likelihood (>80%) that a powerful trough will develop over the High Plains/Great Lakes area mid to late week. This could send a backdoor cold front into eastern NM as early as Wednesday night. While widespread precipitation appears unlikely, an increase in cloud coverage and cooler temperatures are favored east of the central mountain chain. The higher moisture should be able to mitigate fire weather concerns as well.

AVIATION
(06Z TAFS)
Issued at 1113 PM MDT Sat Apr 13 2024

VFR with skc and light and vrb winds prevail overnight and Sunday morning. Southerly to southwesterly winds increase late morning Sunday with afternoon gusts reaching 25 to 30kts at more exposed terminals, with 15 to 25kts at more protected valley terminals .

FIRE WEATHER
Issued at 304 PM MDT Sat Apr 13 2024

...CRITICAL TO EXTREME FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS MONDAY CENTRAL AND EAST...

Southwest winds increase somewhat Sunday, particularly for the western third of the state. Spotty elevated to near critical condtions are forecast to develop Sunday afternoon but winds remain below to well below critical thresholds. This changes on Monday as a low over California continues to approach NM from the northwest.
Widespread critical conditons are forecast for the middle Rio Grande and eastern plains zones Monday afternoon where the Fire Weather Watch was upgraded to a Red Flag Warning. Winds decrease most areas Tuesday but enough locally strong winds continue that spotty critical areas set up once again, mainly south of I-40 and east of I-25. Winds continue to trend down Wednesday, remain light to moderate through the remainder of the work week. A strong backdoor cold front remains in the forecast for next weekend, bringing a cooler, much higher dewpoint airmass and chances for showers and thunderstorms to eastern NM.
