Synopsis A low pressure system across west central new mexico
will bring isolated light showers to areas mainly east of safford to
douglas line into this evening. Dry conditions with a warming trend
will occur Wednesday into Thursday. The next system will bring
another chance of showers mainly northeast of tucson Friday through
Discussion Wrap around moisture on back side of upper low moving
through west central nm this afternoon. Isolated showers/high
elevations snow showers for the remainder of the afternoon hours
into early this evening, mainly east of a safford to douglas line.
Gusty northwest winds this afternoon will diminish this evening.
Dry nwly flow aloft on Wednesday becoming wly on Thursday which will
result in warmer high temperatures both days. Highs on Thursday will
be the warmest in the upcoming 7 day forecast period.
The next pacific storm will impact the area Friday thru Sunday.
Models pretty similar on moving closed low into northern arizona on
Friday with resultant increase in pressure gradient across the area
which will produce breezy to windy conditions. Uncertainties exist
on timing of cold front passage, which will have impact on daytime
highs and then the amount of moisture this system will have or will
briefly pick up from the gulf of california. At this time, have
relegated the slight chance pops to areas NE of tucson, but can't
rule out further areal coverage. I say this due to ECMWF producing|
some light QPF Friday morning/afternoon while the gfs/gfs ensembles
remain dry. Something for later shifts to monitor. Highs on Friday
will be well below normal to close out march.
Unsettled conditions over the first weekend of april as several
disturbances aloft drop down eastern arizona on the back side of the
upper low as it moves to the east. Again the best chances at this
time appear to be NE of tucson. Warmer to end the weekend into early
Aviation Valid through 29/12z.
Isolated -shra thru 29/03z relegated to areas east of a ksad-kdug.
Otherwise expect skc to sct clouds 6-10k ft agl. Sfc wind wly/nwly
12-25 kts with gusts to near 35 kts thru 29/03z. The strongest
speeds will be east of ktus. Sfc wind then diminishing to less than
10 kts aft 29/03z with direction terrain driven. Aviation discussion
not updated for TAF amendments.
Fire weather Breezy to locally windy conditions will diminish
this evening. Afternoon breezes will continue Wednesday and Thursday
along with warmer temperatures. Another weather system will then
move in late Friday with gusty winds. Red flag conditions possible
Friday afternoon across far southern fire weather zone 152. This
system will also bring a chance of showers mainly northeast of
tucson Friday through Sunday.
Twc watches/warnings/advisories None.

If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
