Synopsis Dry conditions will prevail into early next week. A
warming trend will push temperatures back to well above average by
Friday and into early next week.
Discussion No changes to the forecast are necessary at this
time. Dry northwest flow continues across SE az this morning. In
fact, there are some insane dew point values above 7000ft in the
mountains. Observations are showing dew point values in the -10f
to -30f range with corresponding rh values in the single digits.
The exceptionally dry layer can be seen nicely in point forecast
soundings and the morning RAOB from tucson. Other than the very
dry air, expect temps to warm by a few degrees this afternoon.
This trend will continue through the week with temps in the
60s 70s across the region.

Prev discussion The eastern pacific ridge will continue to be
the main feature influencing the weather across arizona through
early next week. Latest models were still advertising a couple of
systems brushing arizona tonight into Thursday and again late
Friday into Saturday. Both systems will be dry so not expecting
any precipitation chances associated with each one. Daytime
temperatures will fluctuate with each system, but overall a
warming trend can be anticipated with high temperatures peaking
about 4 to 8 degrees above normal.

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.
