Synopsis Dry conditions with unseasonably warm daytime
temperatures through midweek. Increased moisture will then bring
isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms mainly east of
tucson Friday into Saturday. Dry conditions to return Sunday.

Discussion A weak disturbance near baja will spread more high
clouds across the area during the next 24 hours. Otherwise, a ridge
of high pressure will provide the area with warm and dry conditions
the next few days. Thereafter, models were in good agreement with
spreading mid-level moisture into the eastern one-half of arizona by
Friday and Saturday. This moisture increase will bring isolated to
scattered showers and thunderstorms to southeast arizona Friday and
more so Saturday , especially in the mountains and east of tucson. A
low pressure system entering the pacific northwest will shunt this
moisture east of the area Sunday with rain chances ending. A
secondary system will enter the desert southwest on Monday bringing
strong and gusty winds as early as Sunday afternoon and evening.

This system will also result in slightly cooler daytime temperatures
early next week.

Aviation Valid through 26 00z.

Scattered to broken cirrus clouds through the period, thickening
overnight in the mid-levels around 15k ft agl. Surface winds swly-
nwly 8-12 kts with occasional gusts near 20 kts, decreasing light
and variable after sunset. A similar wind regime returns tomorrow
afternoon. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.

Fire weather Light winds and dry conditions remain through the
beginning of Thursday, when an approaching weather system brings a
slight chance of thunderstorms over the white mountains in the late
afternoon evening. Unsettled weather becomes more expansive on
Friday as thunderstorms potentially develop from tucson eastward.

The primary concern will be dry thunderstorms capable of starting
fires and producing strong outflow winds, especially in the higher
terrain where development is more likely. Similar conditions persist
into Saturday as well. Dry weather returns for Sunday and beyond,
but 20-ft winds strengthen reaching 15-25 mph each afternoon through
Tuesday.

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.
