Synopsis Southeast arizona will see mostly dry conditions this
week, with one or two storms possible near the mountains from time
to time. Temperatures will remain a little above average for late
Discussion The large scale pattern shows weak ridging nosing in
from mexico into southwestern states, while a trough digs into the
pacific northwest. In general, that means a modest westerly flow
for our area and generally dry conditions. Surface dewpoint trends
are down 5 to 15 degrees over the past 24 hours, generally
dropping into the 40s. Precipitable water analysis and satellite
estimates showing around 1 2 inch in our eastern areas, increasing
to around 1 inch in our lower desert international border areas.
We might manage a few buildups in those areas this afternoon
(generally south and southwest of tucson), but don't expect it to
amount to much.
With the trough digging from the pacific northwest through the
rest of the region north of our area, we could see a little more
moisture seep up from the south and continue a low-grade
thunderstorm forecast that favors the mountains into Wednesday or
Ultimately it's a weak flow with little forcing and not much in
the way of mechanisms to change that one way or the other (either
scour the moisture completely out or increase it in any
significant or sustainable way). This time of year we start to see
if we can get a moisture assist from the tropics, so we will
continue to watch for the trends hinted at by current medium range
operation and ensemble means. They suggest october could start
out pretty busy.
Aviation Valid through 24 12z.
Few-sct clouds at 8k-12k ft agl this afternoon and evening,
otherwise expect skc conditions. Elevated easterly southeasterly
winds continue through this morning at ktus between 10-15 kts then
decrease by late morning. Elsewhere, winds hold below 12 kts out of
the east southeast throughout the period. Aviation discussion not
updated for TAF amendments.
Fire weather A slight chance of afternoon thunderstorms will be
possible along the international border today and Monday, then
expanding to include areas east and south of tucson for the the rest
if the week. Terrain driven 20-foot winds persist, mainly less than
15 mph through next week.
Twc watches warnings advisories None.

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.
