Synopsis Expect a strong warming trend into Thursday when near
record temperatures will occur, especially from tucson eastward. A
weather system will then bring a slight chance of showers Friday
north of tucson. Cooler temperatures and gusty winds will also
occur. Dry conditions will prevail Saturday through Monday, then a
slight chance exists next Tuesday across the white mountains. High
temperatures will cool below seasonal normals early next week.
Discussion Current IR satellite imagery shows broken
cirrus over southeastern arizona with more on the way from over the
pacific. Water vapor imagery shows a ridge dominating most of the
western u.S with its axis extending from the az nm border up to
alberta. A longwave trough is positioned just off the west coast of
the u.S. With abundant moisture streaming around its southeast side
into southern california. We will remain under the influence of the
ridge Thursday which will lead to high temperatures approaching
record values for a few locales around southeast arizona. This
includes tucson, which could see its first 90 degree day of the year
Thursday. Otherwise expect mostly cloudy skies tonight and Thursday
skies along with gusty winds in the afternoon. Please see previous
discussion for more details.
Aviation Valid thru 23 06z.
Bkn-ovc clouds AOA 20k ft agl through the forecast period with few
to sct clouds at 12k-14k ft agl starting Thursday afternoon.
Variable surface wind less than 10 kts will occur overnight and|
Thursday morning. Breezy wly swly winds will occur Thursday
afternoon, generally 12 to 16 kts with gusts to 25 kts, especially
at terminals near the int'l border. Winds should start to die down
around 23 02z. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.
Fire weather There will be a slight chance of showers mainly
north to northeast of tucson on Friday. Otherwise, dry conditions
will prevail through at least next Tuesday. There is the potential
for another system to bring rain chances back to the region by next
Wednesday. 20-ft winds become breezy Thursday with a westerly
component that increases each afternoon into next week, especially
for areas east of tucson.
Prev discussion High pressure aloft will continue to build over
the region today, with high clouds increasing in advance of a
weather system impacting the west coast. High temperatures will peak
Thursday before remnants of the system pass through arizona Thursday
night and Friday. Gusty winds will also develop ahead of this system
Thursday afternoon and evening. Models continued to show very
limited moisture breaching the coastal mountain ranges,so will
maintain low pop values with this system Thursday night and Friday.
Cooler air will accompany the system Friday into the weekend.
Another system passing north of the area will reinforce the cooler
air Monday, with highs remaining a few degrees below normal through
at least next Wednesday.

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.
