Synopsis Daytime temperatures will gradually increase to
record levels by thanksgiving and into the upcoming weekend. Dry
conditions will continue into at least early next week.
Discussion The ridge centered just off the baja peninsula
will reorient it's axis in a northeasterly direction and into our
area over the next 36 hours as a strong system off the pacific
northwest coast tries to push inland. As a result, expect
afternoon high temperatures to soar past record levels to almost
20 degrees above average by Thursday. Our current forecast handles
this well. Please see the previous discussion below for
Aviation Valid thru 22 18z.
Sct-bkn clouds above 20k ft agl. Sfc wind less than 10 kts thru
22 09z, then increasing sely ely sfc wind at 10-17 knots Wednesday
morning. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.
Fire weather Dry conditions are expected through at least the
next 7 days. Well above normal temperatures return to the region
Wednesday, continuing through the upcoming weekend. 20-foot winds
will be gusty from the southeast to east on Wednesday. Winds will
be terrain driven and mainly less than 15 mph at other times.
Climate Several web pages are headlined on our website that
pertain to the record temperatures that will be occurring during
the thanksgiving 4 day holiday weekend.|
Prev discussion High clouds continue to move across the area
under NW flow aloft with upper high centered off the baja spur.
This upper high will strengthen a bit today as the upper ridge
amplifies over the SW conus. Will likely see a decrease in high
level clouds tonight into Wednesday. Highs today a few degrees
warmer than Monday.
Low level surface gradient tightens up out of the east-southeast
overnight into Wednesday morning with gusts up to 25 mph in
favored areas that are susceptible to easterly winds. As the upper
ridge over the area on Wednesday provides additional warming
across the western half of the forecast area, where a few locals
will be near record highs, the gusty east winds over the eastern
half will usher in some slightly cooler air, especially across
cochise, graham and greenlee counties where highs on Wednesday
will be a few degrees cooler than today.
The anomalously strong upper ridge over the area during the
thanksgiving 4-day holiday weekend will bring record or near
record highs to most of the area. Tucson will be flirting with
the latest 90 degree high on record either Thu or fri. See
climate section below for additional details.
Upper ridge flattens early next week as a dry upper level trof
enters the state. No rain for the remainder of the month.
Twc watches warnings advisories None.

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.
