Travel Day – Deming, NM, to Tucson, AZ: 1/30/16

I’m on the road today, so my post will be brief. The weather is cool, clear and still so far this morning in Deming.

The visible satellite imagery shows one small band of clouds near our location, but otherwise, we have clear skies along our route.

The infrared satellite imagery shows that there is some thickness to these clouds as well.

The water vapor satellite imagery shows that there is quite a bit of moisture in Northern New Mexico, with some moisture extending southward along this cloud line.

The National Weather Service (NWS) in El Paso predicts that today will be mostly sunny here in Deming, with a high temperature of 70 F. This evening will be mostly clear, with a low temperature of 35 F.

The NWS in Tucson predicts a mostly sunny day today, with a high temperature of 77 F, and variable winds. This evening will be partly cloudy with a low temperature of 46 F.

The 300 mb NAM chart shows that we are just outside of an approaching, broad, jetstreak.

The NAM shows no strong vorticity advection, rising air, or thermal advection at the 500 mb, 700 mb and 850 mb levels, respectively. They have been excluded from this post.

Overall, I expect smooth sailing across the southwest this morning.

Thank you for reading my forecast.
