NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
655 AM MST SAT DEC 20 2014

.DISCUSSION...
WE WILL SEE A QUIET WEATHER PATTERN FOR MUCH OF THE NEXT 7 DAYS. A
WEAK UPPER LEVEL STORM SYSTEM WILL MOVE ACROSS THE REGION
TODAY...BUT IT WILL ONLY GIVE US AN INCREASE IN OUR HIGH CLOUDS.
TEMPERATURES WILL INCREASE A LITTLE ABOVE NORMAL BY SUNDAY BEFORE
A COLD FRONT DROPS US A LITTLE BELOW NORMAL FOR TUESDAY AND
WEDNESDAY. CHRISTMAS DAYS LOOKS DRY...BUT BREEZY TO WINDY AND THEN
WE WILL SEE ANOTHER UPPER LEVEL STORM SYSTEM BRING A SLIGHT CHANCE
FOR PRECIPITATION TO THE AREA BY NEXT FRIDAY. MIN RH`S FOR THE
NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS WILL BE IN THE 30`S IN THE LOWLANDS AND IN THE
40`S IN THE MOUNTAINS...BUT BY THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK WE WILL SEE
20`S IN THE LOWLANDS AND 30`S IN THE MOUNTAINS.
