Synopsis Generally dry conditions with a cooling trend and
gusty winds at times into early next week. A low pressure system
will bring a chance of valley rain and mountain snow mainly east
of tucson by the middle of next week.

Discussion Breezy and not quite as warm today as our
southwesterly to westerly flow increased ahead of a strong storm
system keeping a mean trough position alive through the pacific
northwest and northern portions of the great basin. A modest
moisture increase evident at 700mb on the 00z ktwc sounding and
surface dew points are back into the 30s; up 6 to 12 degrees
compared to 24 hours ago. Winds aren't quite strong enough to keep
things well mixed tonight, so winds are lightening up in valley
locations on schedule this evening. A weakness embedded in the
flow off the baja coast is evident on water vapor imagery which
will push into central to northern sonora in the morning and clip
our area tomorrow afternoon. A quick look at 00z nbm data
continues some 18z model trends of increasing precip chances in
the far SE corner of the area near douglas and the chiricahua mts
Saturday afternoon. We'll tweak pop values up there and adjust
cloud trends to take into account current trends and a break in
cloud cover in the morning before increasing in the afternoon.

Please see the previous discussion for additional details.

Aviation Valid through 25 06z.

Sct clouds above 20k ft agl with few-sct clouds 8-12k ft agl.

High level clouds gradually increasing in coverage tonight with
isolated -shra possible near kdug after 24 20z. Surface winds
swly- wly 8 to 14 kts continuing to diminish overnight, gusty and
stronger Saturday afternoon. Aviation discussion not updated for
taf amendments.

Fire weather Dry and breezy weather is expected for the next few
days, lasting into Monday of next week. A few areas will briefly
reach critical fire weather conditions Saturday and Sunday
afternoons, especially east to south of tucson. A red flag warning
has been posted for Saturday across eastern santa cruz and most of
cochise counties. A fire weather watch has also been issued for the
extreme southeast corner of cochise county on Sunday. Please refer
to the fire weather products for more details. Otherwise, 20-ft
winds 15 to 20 mph, locally up to 25 mph, decreasing during the
nighttime hours. Conditions will abate on Tuesday with the arrival
of a developing weather system that brings a chance of showers into
part of Thursday.

Prev discussion Afternoon temperatures were running about 8 to
10 degrees lower than yesterday as the result of a cooler air
mass settling into the area today. This cooling trend will
continue through the weekend as a weather system enters the
intermountain west. Models continued to show a thin band of
moisture passing through extreme southeast arizona later tonight
and Saturday. This band of moisture may result in a few light
showers tomorrow afternoon, especially in the chiricahua
mountains. Otherwise, strong and gusty winds will develop during
the afternoon on Saturday and Sunday especially east and south of
tucson as a system deepens along the west coast. These stronger
wind speeds coupled with dry air and a high fire danger rating
have prompted the issuance of a red flag warning for mainly
eastern santa cruz and most of cochise counties on Saturday. A
fire weather watch has also been posted for the extreme southeast
corner of cochise county on Sunday where similar conditions are
forecast. Models were in pretty good agreement with an upper low
developing over the desert southwest around Tuesday into
Wednesday. This will result in another round of cooler
temperatures along with a chance of valley rain and mountain snow.

Twc watches warnings advisories
Red flag warning from 10 am to 6 pm mst Saturday for azz151-152.

Fire weather watch from Sunday morning through Sunday afternoon

These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with 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 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.
