DISCUSSION...

Not many changes to the current forecast, as a dry forecast under
upper level ridging continues.  CAA overnight from yesterday`s cold
front has resulted in a slow start to warming this afternoon,
w/highs expected to top out several degrees below normal.  However,
as the west coast ridge continues building in, a gradual warm-up is
still on tap thru Thursday, when it`ll feel more like early April
than February.  Late Thursday afternoon, the next (dry) cold front
is due into the area, w/models coming in w/post-frontal temps a
little cooler than in the past few runs.  However, temps will still
stay above normal.  A secondary (dry) front is advertized for Monday
to round out the extended.

Again, no rain thru the extended, w/the latest ECMWF coming in bone
dry again.  Critical fire wx concerns remain minimal, as well.

VFR conditions with will prevail the next 24 hours with light
winds gradually veering to the southwest through the period.

&&

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 339 AM CST MON FEB 8 2016/

DISCUSSION...
Will start the day with an upper ridge over the western half of the
country with a large trough centered over the Great Lakes.  The
ridge will slowly slide east as the trough moves toward the
Atlantic.  This will result in mild wx for the region into next
week.

After another unseasonably warm day yesterday looking for a
noticeably cooler day today in post frontal conditions.  highs today
should be in the 50s as a north wind and cold air advection
continues through the day.  Wind should become westerly/downslope
Tuesday as temps quickly recover into the 60s.  Warming temps
continue through the week as highs in the 70s return Wednesday and
hang around through next weekend.

Should have lots of high clouds today but forecast will remain dry.
Gusty NE wind at GDP should decrease throughout the day.

.AVIATION...

VFR conditions with will prevail the next 24 hours with light
winds gradually veering to the southwest through the period.

&&

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 339 AM CST MON FEB 8 2016/

DISCUSSION...
Will start the day with an upper ridge over the western half of the
country with a large trough centered over the Great Lakes.  The
ridge will slowly slide east as the trough moves toward the
Atlantic.  This will result in mild wx for the region into next
week.

After another unseasonably warm day yesterday looking for a
noticeably cooler day today in post frontal conditions.  highs today
should be in the 50s as a north wind and cold air advection
continues through the day.  Wind should become westerly/downslope
Tuesday as temps quickly recover into the 60s.  Warming temps
continue through the week as highs in the 70s return Wednesday and
hang around through next weekend.

Should have lots of high clouds today but forecast will remain dry.
Gusty NE wind at GDP should decrease throughout the day.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 245 PM CST SUN FEB 7 2016/

DISCUSSION...

Not many changes to the current forecast.  At 18Z, sfc analysis
showed fropa about an hour away from KMAF, w/afternoon temps most
locations at or above normal.  Over the past few days, models have
been pretty consistent on the timing of the front, but lagging by a
few hours before CAA really gets going.  Nevertheless, a hard freeze
looks likely overnight, especially after post-frontal gradients
relax under mostly clear skies.  Monday, temps should top out below
normal under light northerly flow, before winds back around to the
southwest/west and bring temps back above-normal Tuesday as the west
coast ridge moves further inland.  Temps are then scheduled to
continue climbing thru Thursday afternoon, feeling more like April
than February as temps most locations climb to the mid-upper 70s.
Unfortunately, another front arrives Thursday evening, w/models
putting fropa at KMAF at around 00Z Friday.  This will take temps
down a notch thru the weekend, but most areas should reach 70F or
better each afternoon.

Otherwise, rain remains elusive thru the extended, w/the latest
ECMWF bone dry, among others.  However, the ridge will still make
for some fairly tame wind fields, putting to rest any critical fire
wx concerns for the moment.

.AVIATION...

A weak cold front is currently moving through the area, and should
be south of FST within the first hour or two of the forecast
period. Winds have shifted to the NW and increased to around
12-15KT with the front passage, but will diminish and further veer
to the northeast by late this afternoon/early this evening from
north to south. Light winds are expected thereafter, with VFR
conditions prevailing.

&&

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 339 AM CST SUN FEB 7 2016/

DISCUSSION...
Upper trough moving down across the Central Plains states today as a
strong ridge remains over the West Coast.  The ridge will build east
the next few days and dominate the wx pattern resulting in mild and
warming wx for the area.  It will also result in little to no chance
of precipitation for the coming week.

A weak front will move through today with the wind swinging around
to the north but actually expect a warm day with highs in the 60s as
850 temps should be around 9C/49F.  The colder air looks to lag the
wind shift as it will be cooler on Monday with highs in the 50s.  By
Tuesday the wind comes around to the W/SW with temps rebounding back
into the 60s.  Normal highs for this time of year in the central CWA
are 60.  As the ridge moves overhead readings will climb into the
70s and remain warm through the end of the week.

WV imagery shows NW flow aloft over West Texas and Southeast New
Mexico, on the eastern side of a broad, upper-lvl ridge off the west
coast.  To the north, a trough is traversing the U.S./Canadian
border, and will send a cold front thru the region Sunday.  Timing
of the front, forecast soundings, and temp progs suggest temps
climbing to just above normal Sunday afternoon before the front
takes them back below normal Monday.  However, beginning Tuesday,
the west coast ridge begins building inland, and will send temps
back abv normal.  Temps then should peak around Thursday, feeling
more like early April than early February as temps most locations
climb into the mid-70s.  A weak cold front Thursday night will take
temps down a notch into the weekend, but not by much.

It almost goes w/out saying that, with this pattern, a chance of
rain is slim to none, and Slim just left.  However, the ridge will
make for some fairly tame wind fields, putting to rest any critical
fire wx concerns for the moment.

.AVIATION...

VFR conditions under clear skies will prevail the next 24 hours.
Light W/SW winds will continue, however a weak cold front is
expected to edge into northern portions of the area during the
last 6 hours of the forecast period, accompanied by a wind shift
to the NW. Have included mention at CNM and HOB for now, with
wind speeds expected to remain AOB 12KT for the duration.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 322 AM CST SAT FEB 6 2016/

DISCUSSION...
This morning W TX/SE NM is on backside of upper trough and east side
of upper ridge centered off the CA coast.  Another trough moves down
across the Central Plains Sunday and keeps the ridge from building
in for a few days.  By Thursday the ridge axis will shift east
crossing the Rockies on Friday.  As it does another upper trough
will move ashore the West Coast reaching NM by next Sunday.

A cold front moved through last evening with NW wind that will
come back around to the SW during the day as a new leeside trough
develops.  Have clear skies this morning with a chilly start to
the day.  Another weak front moves through Sunday.  This will put
temperatures on a roller coaster bouncing above and below 60
degrees across the central CWA.  However by midweek highs should
climb into the 70s nearly areawide as the upper ridge builds in...
could see some 80s along the Rio Grande.  Lows mostly at or below
freezing the next few mornings.  At this time still no
precipitation in the forecast.

This morning W TX/SE NM is on backside of upper trough and east side
of upper ridge centered off the CA coast.  Another trough moves down
across the Central Plains Sunday and keeps the ridge from building
in for a few days.  By Thursday the ridge axis will shift east
crossing the Rockies on Friday.  As it does another upper trough
will move ashore the West Coast reaching NM by next Sunday.

A cold front moved through last evening with NW wind that will
come back around to the SW during the day as a new leeside trough
develops.  Have clear skies this morning with a chilly start to
the day.  Another weak front moves through Sunday.  This will put
temperatures on a roller coaster bouncing above and below 60
degrees across the central CWA.  However by midweek highs should
climb into the 70s nearly areawide as the upper ridge builds in...
could see some 80s along the Rio Grande.  Lows mostly at or below
freezing the next few mornings.  At this time still no
precipitation in the forecast.
