Synopsis A few showers are possible late this afternoon and
evening across southern cochise county. Otherwise look for an
increase in high clouds today with continued well above normal high
temperatures. A fast moving disturbance will bring isolated showers
and thunderstorms Wednesday night into Thursday, mainly north and
northeast of tucson. Expect some minor cooling Friday and Saturday,
then very warm temperatures return early next week as high pressure
aloft builds over the area.
Discussion Satellite imagery this morning showed high clouds
approaching the area from the SW in advance of a upper level
disturbance that was about 400 miles west of the baja spur. These
high clouds, thick at times later this afternoon, will move across
the area today. Pw values this morning across the area where
generally in the 0.50" to 0.75" range with higher values to an inch
across sonora mx. Some of this higher pw values to our south will
advect north into the far southern areas near the international
border today and combined with daytime heating and weak wave pushing
thru, could develop areas of virga or light showers across the
southern portions of cochise county late this afternoon into this
evening. The 00z NAM and 00z GEFS producing some light QPF along the
border and can't rule out a lightning strike or two. Thus went ahead
and introduced slight chance pops to SRN cochise county late this
afternoon into early this evening. Even with the increase in cloud
cover later today will see another day of well above normal mid-

Dry zonal flow over the area Friday and Saturday with slight cooler
daytime temperatures but still remaining above normal. Cooler

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.
