Marine Weather and Tides
Tucson Estates, AZ

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis Dry conditions will continue through Thursday. High
temperatures will rebound to several degrees above normal Tuesday
into Wednesday as high pressure aloft builds across the area.

Thereafter, enough moisture Friday into next Sunday for a slight
chance of afternoon and evening thunderstorms mainly east to south
of tucson.

Discussion Clear skies prevail across southeast arizona at this
time with surface winds at lower elevations generally from the west
to northwest at 5-15 mph. Dewpoints at lower elevations valid 9 pm
mst ranged from the mid 30s-mid 40s, and these temps were about 5-10
degrees lower versus 24 hours ago across much of the area. The
exception was northeast of tucson where dewpoints were a few degrees
higher versus this time Saturday evening. 25 00z ktwc sounding total
precip water value of 0.76 inch was down nearly two-tenths of an
inch versus just 12 hours ago.

Expect clear skies the rest of tonight, with low temps later tonight
early Monday morning ranging from the upper 50s in the cooler
eastern valleys to around 70 or the lower 70s from the tucson metro
area northwestward into south central pinal county.

Please refer to the additional sections for further detail.

Clear skies through much of the valid period or into Monday evening.

However, a few clouds around 10k-15k ft agl may occur late Monday
morning into early Monday evening. Surface wind Monday afternoon and
evening mainly nwly at 8-18 kts with gusts near 25 kts. The
strongest speeds will likely prevail in vicinity of ksad. Surface
wind variable in direction mostly less than 12 kts at other times.

Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.

Fire weather Hot and dry conditions will prevail through
Thursday with haines 6 conditions much of the area Tuesday and
Wednesday. Moisture will begin to increase Friday with a slight
chance of afternoon and evening thunderstorms Friday through next
Sunday. 20-foot winds will generally be less than 15 mph into next
weekend, with directions mainly west to northwest Monday through
Wednesday, and south to southwest Thursday onward. Occasional
afternoon gusts will occur due to strong daytime heating.

Prev discussion 238 pm mst Surface dewpoints have mixed out
into the 40s across the area this afternoon after being in the 50s
to lower 60s this morning. Afternoon temps were running a few
degrees cooler than Saturday. The added moisture has produced a few
puffy cumulus clouds this afternoon. Upper ridge expands over the
desert southwest through the upcoming week with highs heating back
up. Hottest day this week will likely be Wednesday, but can't rule
out Tuesday being as hot for some locales.

Thunderstorm activity will gradually increase across northern
mexico during the upcoming week, especially Wednesday and Thursday
as an inverted trof pushes west. Some of this moisture will be
advected north across the eastern half of the forecast area Friday
into next weekend in advance of an upper level trof pushing into
the intermountain west. Thus went with slightly higher the
late june climatology pops for Friday thru Sunday for areas south
and east of tucson.

Twc watches warnings advisories None.

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.
