Synopsis Dry conditions with unseasonably warm daytime
temperatures again Thursday. Increased moisture will then bring
isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms mainly east of
tucson Friday into Saturday. Dry conditions to return Sunday, with
next week shaping up to be a little cooler and windy at times.
Discussion After an afternoon with nearly clear conditions across
southeast arizona, IR satellite imagery showed scattered cirrus
streaming across the state from the west. The high temperature at
ktus this afternoon was 95 degs f, or 10 degs f above normal for
this date. We'll hold onto the above normal temps for the next few
days despite increasing moisture from the south and east. Confidence
continues to increase with regard to thunderstorm potential Friday
and Saturday, especially east of tucson. Thereafter, we'll get a
little reprieve as temperatures fall to near or below normal levels
early next week. No updates needed this evening. The remaining
sections address the forecast in further detail.
Aviation Valid through 27 06z.
Few-sct cirrus clouds into Thursday becoming bkn by the end of the
period. Sfc wind variable in direction mainly less than 10 kts
tonight and early Thursday. Winds Thursday afternoon will generally
have a westerly component with speeds less than 12 kts. Aviation
discussion not updated for TAF amendments.
Fire weather Light winds and dry conditions into early
Thursday, then increased moisture from the east brings a slight
chance of thunderstorms over the white mountains Thursday afternoon
and evening. Sufficient moisture for isolated to scattered mainly
afternoon and evening thunderstorms from tucson eastward Friday into|
The main concern Friday into Saturday is thunderstorms capable of
starting fires and producing strong outflow winds, especially in the
higher terrain where development is more likely. Dry conditions will
then prevail Sunday into Tuesday.
20-foot winds terrain driven less than 15 mph through Thursday.
Gusty east to southeast winds from tucson eastward Friday morning
should occur before potentially gusty thunderstorm outflows Friday
afternoon into Saturday. Gusty south to southwest winds are on tap
Saturday into Monday. Critical fire conditions may return Monday and
Tuesday particularly across mountains from tucson southward and
southeastward into santa cruz cochise counties.
Prev discussion The main weather story will be the
increase in moisture and the chance of showers and thunderstorms
Friday and Saturday. Latest models were in good agreement with
spreading mid-level moisture into eastern sections of arizona by
Friday and more so on Saturday. This increase in moisture combined
with daytime surface heating will result in isolated to scattered
showers and thunderstorms, mainly in the afternoon and evening hours
on Friday and Saturday. The best chance for showers and
thunderstorms will be east of tucson and mainly in the mountains.
Thereafter, a low pressure system entering the pacific northwest
will push this moisture east of the area Sunday with rain chances
ending. A secondary system will impact the region early next week
bringing windy conditions and slightly cooler daytime temperatures.
Twc watches warnings advisories None.

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.
