Synopsis Continued above normal temperatures. Variable
cloudiness with a few light showers possible late this afternoon
and evening across southern cochise county. A fast moving
disturbance will bring isolated showers and thunderstorms
Wednesday night into Thursday, mainly near eastern mountains.
Expect some minor cooling Friday and Saturday, then near record
high temperatures are possible early next week as high pressure
aloft builds over the area.
Discussion High pressure over northwest mexico through our
area and southern california will break down into a zonal flow
over the next couple of days, but we'll continue to see
temperatures around 10 degrees above average over the next few
days. Our portion of the ridge is dirtying up as a weakness in the
flow brings a modest moisture increase from the west at mid
levels, pushing our precipitable water up past .9 inches. We've
also seen a southeasterly surface flow bring in 40+ dew points (up
several degrees over the past 24 hours). Some virga as the cloud
cover thickens a bit today, with a few light showers possible near
the mountains mainly southeast of tucson.
A weak impulse coming in off the pacific will bring another chance
of showers late Wednesday into Thursday, primarily east of tucson
accented by terrain influences. A through western states will|
bring several degrees of cooling and breezy conditions late in the
week, but not much else as the main storm track remains north of
With these few minor exceptions, the main story will continue to
be the unseasonable high temperatures. Near record values are
possible early next week as high pressure rebuilds over the area.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
