Synopsis Generally dry conditions with milder temperatures and
gusty winds at times into next week. We'll see another cool-down
with a few showers possible around the middle of next week.
Discussion Sunny skies with temperatures rebounding this
afternoon as a shortwave ridge phases across the area in a busy
but slightly less amplified pattern. A weather system passing
mainly north of our area Saturday will bring gusty winds during
afternoon hours along with briefly reversing our warming trend
Another system Tuesday with a third Friday, all typical spring
systems bringing mainly winds and moderation to our temperatures
as precip generally misses to our north.
Aviation Valid through 26/00z.
Mostly clear. Some gusty winds in eastern areas this afternoon,
followed by normal wind trends through early Saturday. Surface|
winds then increasing during the day with breezy to windy
conditions out of the west developing by early afternoon.
Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.
Fire weather Generally dry conditions into at least early next
week. A series of storms will bring windy conditions at times over
the next 7 days. Strongest winds are expected to be Saturday,
Tuesday and perhaps next Friday. For tomorrow, critical fire
weather conditions are possible mainly east and southeast of
tucson, with low rh values and increasing winds out of the west.
While minimum rh values will easily bottom out below 15 percent
Saturday afternoon, winds will be borderline. Brief red flag
conditions are possible in a few locations (mainly around southern
portions of fire weather zones 151 and 152, including southern
portions of cochise county), but are not expected to be sustained
or widespread enough to warrant a warning at this time.
Twc watches/warnings/advisories None.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
