Synopsis Generally dry conditions with a cooling trend and
gusty winds at times into early next week. A deeper low pressure
system will bring a chance of valley rain and mountain snow
mainly east of tucson by the middle of next week.
Discussion 91 at tus for a new record this afternoon. The ridge
axis is now east of the area as a couple of systems take aim at
western states. Virga sprinkles are spreading into yuma county
from the southwest ahead of the first weaker system this evening.
We will be too far south for precip chances tonight and tomorrow,
with the main story gusty winds and cooler temperatures. Cooler,
of course, is a relative term as even knocking 8 or 9 degrees off
of today's record still leaves us above average for tomorrow.
We'll see what we can manage when the main system pushes through
early next week, but until then don't county on much more than
additional cooling and more gusty winds.

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.
