Synopsis A storm system will bring a few light showers later
tonight into Thursday. This system will also bring gusty winds
this afternoon and evening followed by much cooler temperatures
Thursday. Dry conditions with somewhat milder temperatures and
gusty winds at times over the weekend into early next week.

Discussion The large ridge axis is now east of our area, with
an increasing southwesterly flow ahead of the deep trough now
onshore near the west coast. Clouds increasing from the west
through tonight. Based on the track of the low a little north of
our area, and the associated cold front now entering western
arizona, it looks like the best chances for precip for most of our
area will be directly associated with the frontal passage
tomorrow morning. Some instability and residual moisture behind
the front tomorrow afternoon for a few showers or thunderstorms
mainly northeast of tucson. Rainfall between a trace and .1 in
valleys with a dusting to an inch or two of snow possible above
7000 feet. Most of the significant precip should be north of our
area.

Winds are holding nicely below advisory levels. The cooler air is
still on track behind the front tomorrow.

A shortwave ridge to end the week with temperatures jumping back
above average, but well short of what we've been seeing. The next
system this weekend will be a more traditional transition season
system, with wind the main concern and enough cool air to push
temperatures back down a few degrees.

Aviation Valid through 24/00z.

Cirrus level clouds will move across the area from W to E today.

Cloud decks will be lowering west of ktus after 23/02z as isolated
to scattered -shra move in from the west, impacting ktus and kols
after 23/09z. Prevalent conditions should remainVFR.

Surface wind sly/swly at 13-20 kts with gusts of 25-35 kts through
early evening... Diminishing overnight before increasing again from
the west Thursday afternoon. The strongest winds in those ranges
will be s/se of ktus in the vcnty of kols and kdug.

Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.

Fire weather A pacific storm system will bring a few mainly
light showers tonight followed by a chance of showers mainly
northeast of tucson on Thursday. A few snow showers may occur
across the white mountains northeast of safford Thursday night.

Dry conditions will then prevail Friday into Sunday. There is a
slight chance of showers across the white mountains next Monday.

The pacific storm system will also bring gusty mainly southwest
winds this afternoon into tonight. The combination of strong and
gusty southwest winds and low relative humidity may create critical
fire weather conditions this afternoon across the southern one-third
of fire zone 152. At this point however, it looks like conditions
are holding under red flag criteria with gusty but marginal winds.

There will be some gusty west to northwest winds Thursday
accompanied by higher rh values, then less wind Friday into
Saturday. Some gusty afternoon west winds are forecast to return
Sunday and next Monday.

Twc watches/warnings/advisories None.

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.
