Synopsis A strong low pressure system moving north of the area
will bring gusty winds into this evening. Cooler temperatures will
also occur today with a few showers possible across the white
mountains late this afternoon and evening. A strong warming trend
will then prevail Saturday into Monday with above normal
temperatures continuing into the middle of next week.

Discussion Abundant sunshine prevailed across southeast az this
morning. The exception was across northern greenlee county where a
few cumulus clouds were present. Pressure gradient has relaxed a
bit since yesterday but still will see gusty winds today. The tight
pressure gradient is associated with a strong upper low which was
over SE utah this morning. A disturbance of the back side of this
upper low will move across NE az this afternoon into this evening
and bring a slight chance of rain snow showers to far northern
greenlee county tonight. Much cooler today behind yesterdays cold
frontal passage with highs running 6-9 degrees below normal. With
a cooler air mass in place, overnight lows will get quite chilly
for mid-april with localized spots in our colder valleys east and
south of tucson possibly seeing an hour or two of freezing
temperatures.

Temperatures rebound quickly tomorrow under building high pressure
aloft. Will see an increase in mainly high level cloud cover late
Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning in advance of an
approaching weak upper level low from the southwest. More on this
and the possibility of a few light showers near the international
border in the afternoon discussion.

Aviation Valid through 21 12z.

Scattered to broken clouds at 6k-10k ft agl with isolated -shra
-shsn across the white mtns northeast of ksad this afternoon and
evening. Otherwise, mostly clear skies. Winds will be variable less
than 12 kts through mid-morning then begin to pick up. This
afternoon will be gusty again with winds out of the northwest at 14-
22 kts with gusts up to 30 kts. The highest wind speeds will be at
ksad and kdug. Winds will then diminish starting a little after
sunset. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.

Fire weather Winds will pick up again this afternoon, but not as
strong as yesterday, and they are not expected to reach widespread
red flag levels. Mainly east of tucson, 15-20 mph with occasional
higher gusts. Winds then become predominantly light and terrain
driven over the weekend and beyond with the usual afternoon gusts.

No precipitation is expected aside from a few showers in the white
mountains late this afternoon and evening.

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. 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.
