NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ALBUQUERQUE NM
800 AM MST THU DEC 18 2014

.DISCUSSION...
A PACIFIC WAVE CURRENTLY OVER CENTRAL ARIZONA WILL SKIRT OVER THE
AREA TODAY ALTHOUGH THE MAIN WETTING IMPACTS SHOULD BE FELT SOUTH OF
THE FORECAST AREA. HUMIDITY VALUES WILL REMAIN ON THE HIGH SIDE
WITH PLUMMETING VENTILATION RATES. LOWER HUMIDITY ON FRIDAY ALTHOUGH
REMAINING UNSEASONABLY HIGH MOST AREA. VENTILATION RATES WILL
IMPROVE IN AREAS BUT REMAIN POOR OVER MOST OF THE NORTH CENTRAL
MOUNTAINS. DRIER CONDITIONS WILL REMAIN DURING THE WEEKEND. STILL
LOOKING AT A PACIFIC WAVE PASSING OVERHEAD SATURDAY INTO SATURDAY
NIGHT. VENTILATION SHOULD IMPROVE THEN AND ESPECIALLY RISE HIGHER
ON SUNDAY FOLLOWING THE WAVE PASSAGE. GUSTIER NORTHWEST FLOW WILL
INTENSIFY EARLY NEXT WEEK. VENTILATION SHOULD BE PRETTY GOOD DURING
THIS PERIOD. PERHAPS A COOLER PACIFIC STORM SYSTEM BY LATE NEXT
WEEK.
