Synopsis Mostly cloudy with a slight chance of a shower early
today and light snow showers for the white mountains otherwise dry
across the area this weekend. A cold storm system will bring the next
chance of valley mountain and considerably lower snow levels Sunday
evening into Tuesday. Expect dry conditions the middle of next week
before another valley rain and mountain snow event next Thursday and
Friday. Temperature near normal today, than cooler than normal this
weekend through all of next week.

Discussion Still cleaning up from the major, in some ways record
rain event last night. Still have a few washes with high flows and
one currently above flood stage and there remains some concern for
lower reaches of the santa cruz as the flow continues downstream.

Weather wise, today will remain mostly cloudy with just a few
isolated light rain showers about the first part of the day with high
temperatures near seasonal norms. Not planning any morning forecast
updates at this time but will be spending some time on the afternoon
package as attention will pivot to the two incoming storm systems
next week which will be colder with much lower snow levels which will
likely include some of the valleys.

Aviation Valid through 16 18z.

Isolated -shra from ktus north and east will continue to decrease in
coverage then mainly dry conditions this afternoon and evening.

Expect MVFR and occasional ifr conditions with higher terrain
obscurations this morning. Otherwise, cloud decks mostly 3k-8k ft
agl. Surface wind diminishing to mainly under 12 kts this morning,
then surface wind swly to nwly 5-15 kts with gusts of 20-25 kts.

Strongest speeds east of ktus. Aviation discussion not updated for
taf amendments.

Fire weather No fire weather concerns for the next week as the
area will remain in a cool and wet weather pattern.

Hydrology Heavy runoff continues in the catalina, rincon and
pinaleno mountains although they are decreasing at a steady rate.

Some small stream flood warnings remain for another couple of hours
and watching the santa cruz downstream of the rillito as the surge
heads that way. Fyi, the early morning stage on sabino creek near
the sabino dam, based on data on the nws AHPS page, is tentatively
the highest stage since the flood event in late july 2006.

Prev discussion issued 350 am mst Fri feb 15 2019
impressive rain event, thanks to record pw values for february,
in the past 24 hours in the catalina, rincon and pinaleno
mountains where 2 to 5 inches has been recorded in various gages.

Please see hydrology section below for additional information on
heavy runoff in creeks and streams draining out of these mountain
ranges. The highest rainfall totals at the lower elevations,
mainly between 0.75" to 1.50", were across NW tucson metro area,
eastern pinal county and western graham county.

As of 3 am, shower activity has diminished greatly from what was
occurring a few hours ago. Rainfall rates in the mountains also
has diminished. Will maintain a chance of showers, mainly from
tucson north and northeast through mid-morning although can't
rule out a few showers this afternoon across the white mountains.

Cooler today with highs right around mid-february normals.

Dry tonight with localized areas of fog developing.

A weak trof passing through the state will bring a slight chance
of valley rain and mountain snow to areas northeast of tucson on
Saturday. Highs will be 6-8 degrees cooler than today.

Sunday will be dry most of the area expect for a slight chance of
rain snow showers in the white mountains as the next weather
system starts to impact the area. This system is not as wet but is
much colder than our current weather system. Snow levels down to
around 4000 to 4500 feet Monday morning and then down to around
3000 to 3500 feet Tuesday morning. May see some minor snow
accumulations both mornings down to the lower elevations of
graham, cochise and santa cruz counties. Above 5000 feet two day
snow totals in the 3 to 6 inch range. Much cooler on Monday and
Tuesday with highs running 13 to 18 degrees below normal.

The unsettled and cool weather will continue toward the end of
next week with the models suggesting a strong winter storm to
impact the area Thursday night into Friday night. We can thank the
newly christened weak EL nino for the active weather pattern we
are currently in. Love it.

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.
