Synopsis Dry conditions with seasonably mild daytime temperatures
through Wednesday. A passing weather system on thanksgiving day
should produce a few showers mainly near the mountains, and
especially north of tucson. A modest cooling trend will also occur
later this week. Dry conditions next weekend except for a slight
chance of snow showers Saturday night near the white mountains.
A ridge in place over the west will allow us to enjoy a beautiful
start to the week with temperatures pushing into the low to mid
70's across the region with mostly sunny skies. Some high level
clouds have begun to filter into and spread across the area ahead
of a low pressure moving into southern california. There will not
be much change to the sensible weather for the next day or so,
but there are some very slight indications that this system may
bring enough moisture for some isolated showers, particularly for
the white mountains.
An upper trough is also pegged to progress through the western conus
by the middle of the week and through thanksgiving. In general,
this system will cool temperatures slightly and bring a better
chance for showers in the higher terrain on Thursday. The best
chances for any precipitation are most likely to remain north of
tucson. Snow levels will stay in the 7500-8500 foot range and
accumulation of any precipitation anywhere is not likely to be
Otherwise, dry conditions will prevail through the rest of the
week with temperatures at or slightly below normal.
Aviation Valid through 20 23z.
Minimal aviation concerns through the TAF period with wind speeds
mainly below 10 kts. Due to light wind speeds, extended periods
of variable winds will be likely. Few to scattered cloud decks
mainly above 25 kft agl today, becoming broken above 15 kft
tonight into tomorrow morning.
Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.
Fire weather A few showers may occur on thanksgiving day mainly
near the mountains, and especially north of tucson. A slight chance
of snow showers also exists Saturday night near the white mountains.
Otherwise, dry conditions will prevail elsewhere into next weekend.
20-foot winds will generally be less than 10 mph. However, some east
to southeast gusts to near 20 mph may occur Tuesday.

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.
