Synopsis A few thunderstorms may occur east to south of tucson
through this evening. Thunderstorm chances will increase across
southeast arizona Wednesday and Thursday. Some storms may be
strong with gusty winds and heavy rain.
Discussion Cumuliform clouds forming across much of southeast
arizona this afternoon. Their vertical extent has been limited by
the warmer air aloft, but a few radar echoes indicative of showers
showing up on radar over mountains southeast of tucson. Showers
and an isolated thunderstorm or two will remain possible through
Upper level weather system in mexico is triggering thunderstorms
there in deeper moisture. This system will encroach upon SE az by
morning so will keep slight chances for showers and storms in
forecast near the border overnight. This system should have more
of an effect on our area Wednesday, when additional moisture and
better instability should lead to at least scattered coverage of
thunderstorms. While areas east of tucson should be most favored,
the metro area could also get in on the act before the system
veers northeastward taking the best rain chances with it.
Expect moisture and instability to linger Thursday and Friday.
Steering flow will be slow and erratic, so storms should
initially hug the mountains but could progress into the valleys
Models indicate that the upper high will be shifting to our north
sometime in the Friday Saturday time frame, which means that an
easterly or northeasterly flow will develop which should be
conducive to thunderstorms moving off the rim into southeast
arizona. Will keep best pops near the new mexico border Saturday
into early next week.
Aviation Valid thru 24 00z.
Sct-bkn clouds 7-11k ft into this evening with isold -tsra E and
s of ktus through 23 02z. -shra tsra possible toward daybreak but
better coverage of tsra with MVFR CIGS and vsbys aft 23 21z. Surface
wind variable in direction mainly less than 12 kts, although
brief gusts to near 35 kts in vicinity of -tsra are possible.
Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.
Fire weather Expect just a few thunderstorms east and south of
tucson this evening. Thunderstorm chances increase again
Wednesday through Thursday with chances lingering into next
weekend but predominantly east of tucson. Normal diurnal wind
trends will occur through Wednesday then the flow will become
mostly easterly thereafter. Locally strong and gusty winds
expected in the vicinity of thunderstorms. Daytime temperatures

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. 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.
