Synopsis
A strong upper level low pressure system with cold front will
move across the southwestern united states today and tonight. This
storm will cause areas of heavy snows around the mountains with
rain or rain mixed with snow in the lower elevations. In addition
it will be windy over much of the region today and tonight.

Cooler air will also move into the borderland behind the cold
front with temperatures today and Saturday falling to around 15
degrees below normal. Westerly winds will produce warmer dry
weather for most of next week.

Discussion
Strong deep upper low was spinning over southern california early
this morning with attendant strong pacific cold front entering
western arizona. This system has already produced an enormous
record amount of snow around flagstaff arizona but water vapor
images are now also showing drier air is being ingested ahead of
system into eastern arizona and new mexico. This has caused some
decrease in precipitation intensity over arizona and has also
delayed rain snow development over western new mexico as surface
dewpoints are currently only in the 20s.

Upper low will initially move slowly east and only reach the
western new mexico border by the early evening. Backing flow ahead
of it will include 50 kt south to southwest winds at 700 mb which
will provide strong moisture flux as water vapor from gulf of
california transports into the cwa. Differential PVA aloft will
combine with low level convergence frontogenetic forcing to
provide deep upward vertical motion with uplift especially
enhanced along mountain slopes. These factors should still induce
heavy precipitation over the gila region and much of the far
western zones today with precipitation spreading east this
afternoon and early this evening. Strong cold advection behind the
cold front plus dynamic cooling aloft will cause snow levels to
drop during the day with snow even falling over the lower
elevations west of the rio grande before 4 pm this afternoon. At
moment snow warning and advisories look appropriate with no
changes made.

In addition tight gradients associated with surface frontal trough
will combine with strong flow aloft to create windy conditions
today with the high winds persisting over eastern zones into
tonight. Thus wind advisories have been issued.

Upper trough accelerates eastward this evening with axis east of
the CWA by midnight. Northwest flow and subsidence behind the
trough will cause most of the rain and snow to end by midnight.

However cold air advection will continue resulting in Saturday
high temperatures around 15 degrees below normal.

Next week zonal flow and resultant deep westerly winds will
produce dry weather and warming temperatures across southern new
mexico and west texas.

Aviation Valid 22 12z-23 12z.

Widespread areas of MVFR ceilings and visibility with a few areas
of ifr conditions from rain and snow will spread west to east this
morning into the afternoon. Conditions improving to mostlyVFR
after midnight. Also wind today with surface winds around 25 kt
with gusts around 40 kt much of the region.

Fire weather
A strong upper level low pressure system with cold front will
move across the southwestern united states today and tonight. This
storm will cause areas of heavy snows around the mountains with
rain or rain mixed with snow in the lower elevations. In addition
it will be windy over much of the region today and tonight. Wind
gusts from 40 to 50 mph may create near red flag conditions for
some locations east of the rio grande this afternoon. Cooler air
will also move into the borderland behind the cold front with
temperatures today and Saturday falling to around 15 degrees below
normal. Westerly winds will produce warmer dry weather with low
humidity for most of next week.

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.
