Synopsis The record heat is over but temperatures will still be
hot through the week. We still have enough moisture for isolated to
scattered showers into this evening and then again Tuesday across
portions of cochise county. Thereafter, dry conditions are expected
to prevail the remainder of the work week.
Discussion Flow pattern aloft shows a 500 mb high centered to our
southwest across the northern baja peninsula. This is resulting in
north-northeasterly flow aloft across the area. Still adequate
moisture to work with this afternoon as pwat values hang around 1
inch with surface dewpoints in the 40s to lower 50s. Current kemx
radar imagery shows thunderstorms mainly east of tucson, primarily
across the higher terrain. The expectation is most of the convection
will remain east of tucson, with the metro area being on the western
fringe as the storms move south off the higher terrain such as the
catalinas. Main threat will be gusty outflow winds with areas of
blowing dust possible along with brief downpours. A pretty good push
of outflow is already about to come off the mogollon rim towards the
safford area. Otherwise, showers and thunderstorms will gradually
diminish after sunset.
As the subtropical high remains to our south and weakens slightly
for the next few days with increased westerly flow aloft, this will
allow drier air to move into the forecast area along with some
enhanced afternoon breezes in the gila river valley. For Tuesday,
just a slight chance of thunderstorms mainly across portions of
cochise county, then just a few build-ups along the international
border the remainder of the work week but still expected to remain
dry. Temperatures will cool down a couple of degrees this week but|
still slightly above normal which is still quite hot. Signs are
there per both deterministic and ensemble guidance that some
increased moisture will move back in for a return to some
thunderstorm chances south and east of tucson this weekend into
early next week.
Aviation Valid thru 28 00z.
Skc-sct clouds 10-15k ft agl from ktus west, and mainly sct-bkn
clouds at 8-12k ft agl east and south of ktus thru the forecast
period. Isolated to scattered shra tsra mainly east and south of
ktus through this evening, with isolated shra tsra Tuesday afternoon
near kdug and kols. Surface wind north to northwest through this
evening, then less than 12 kts tonight and Tuesday morning. A few of
the stronger tsra may produce wind gusts to 40 kts and brief MVFR
conditions, especially near kdug kols. Aviation discussion not
updated for TAF amendments.
Fire weather Isolated to scattered thunderstorms generally east
and south of tucson through Tuesday. Dry conditions Wednesday
through Friday, then isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms
return south and east of tucson starting this weekend. 20-ft winds
will exhibit diurnal trends with speeds mainly less than 15 mph
through Tuesday. Breezy west to northwest winds of 15 to 20 mph are
likely on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons, especially in the upper
gila river valley. Periods of erratic gustiness may occur due to
strong daytime heating and or thunderstorm outflows. Lighter wind
speeds returning by this weekend.
Twc watches warnings advisories None.

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.
