Synopsis A winter storm will continue to bring valley rain and
substantial mountain snow to the area through tonight. Dry
conditions will prevail this weekend and during the upcoming week.

Unseasonably cold temperatures will continue through Saturday
followed by a pronounced warming trend next week.

Discussion Updates were made to the forecast this morning to
account for the currently accumulating snow across the tucson metro
and surrounding portions of eastern pima county. Snowfall here at
the WFO started to mix with rain at about 740 am and has since
changed to all snow. Snow accums across tucson have ranged from a
few tenths of an inch up to 3 inches in places like vail and green
valley. Snowfall accums so far atop mt lemmon are generally in
excess of 20 inches and in some places over 2 feet. The frontal
boundary will continue to move eastward this morning with rain
changing to snow from west to east across cochise county. Expect
precip to decrease from west to east this afternoon and evening,
eventually ending across southeast arizona by daybreak Saturday.

Please see the remaining sections for additional information.

Aviation Valid through 23 18z.

Bkn-ovc clouds at 1k-4k ft agl area wide through this afternoon with
brief CIGS below 500 ft possible. Thereafter ceilings start to lift
from west to east becoming bkn-ovc 3k-6k ft agl through the end of
the period. Expect -shsn -shra to continue this morning at all
terminals, decreasing from west to east later this afternoon. Precip
is likely to be over by midnight. MVFR conditions likely for most of
the period with ifr lifr possible in -shsn -shra along with mountain
obscurations. Sfc wind S SW at 15-25 knots with gusts 30-35 knots
mainly at kdug through the early afternoon. Speeds less than 10 kts
this morning behind the front, becoming northwesterly at 10-15 knots
gusting to 25 knots this afternoon. By the evening and into tonight,
surface winds likely less than 12 knots. Aviation discussion not
updated for TAF amendments.

Fire weather A significant winter storm continues into tonight
with valley rain and heavy mountain snowfall. 20-ft winds will be
breezy through the early afternoon, with southwesterly winds of 15-
25 mph and gusts to 30-35 mph. The storm system exits the region
early Saturday, with dry and warmer conditions into the middle of
next week along with normal diurnal winds.

Prev discussion... A winter storm continued to pass through the
region early this morning with valley rain and mountain snow still
expected to increase across the area this morning. Temperatures in
the valleys remained mainly in the 40s early this morning, but
falling temperatures can be anticipated late this afternoon as the
snow level lowers. In addition to the valley rain, a few
thunderstorms may develop as the upper core of the system passes
through central arizona this afternoon. Latest models continued to
suggest significant snow accumulations in the mountains, and
eventually down to 2000 feet where accumulations of 1 to 4 inches
can be expected by late this evening. Thus, a winter storm warning
will remain in effect through 8 pm mst for the mountains and higher
valley locations. Models track the system east of the state tonight
as it enters the texas panhandle by Saturday morning. That said,
looking at improving weather for Saturday followed by a warming
trend through next week.

Twc watches warnings advisories
Winter storm warning until 8 pm mst this evening for azz506>515.

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.
