Synopsis Dry conditions with warmer temperatures Tuesday and
Wednesday. Expect gusty winds at times this week. A storm system
should bring isolated to scattered showers and cooler temperatures
during the latter part of the upcoming week.

Discussion Clear to mostly clear conditions prevailed across
southeast arizona this morning. Water vapor imagery this morning
showed a weak upper level low over far NE sonora mx moving east.

Still some residual moisture along the international border and
combined with daytime heating could see a few thunderstorms over
the santa rita and huachuca mountains this afternoon. Highs today
will be similar to Sunday while the easterly wind will not be as
gusty as they were this past weekend.

Tuesday: warmer as short wave ridging moves over the area.

Wednesday: breezy afternoon as a weather system approaches the
areas. A slight chance of precipitation in the whites. Highs
similar to Tuesday.

Wednesday night into Thursday: negatively tilted upper level trof
will bring a chance of valley rain and mountain snow mainly to the
northern portions of the forecast area. Nothing really to write
home about. Cooler Thursday with highs running 8-10 degrees cooler
than Wednesday.

Friday: below normal highs with a slight chance of snow showers in
the whites as upper level trof axis moves across the area.

Upcoming weekend: dry, except slight chance of rain snow showers
for the white mountains. Highs temperatures right around normal.

Aviation Valid through 19 12z.

Persistent upper low is still in place across the area but is
finally starting to drift into new mexico. Looks like another day in
which isolated showers and storms could develop although the areal
coverage should be less today vs what was seen on Sunday. Will
refrain from including vcsh or vcts at any of the TAF sites but will
show an increase in clouds. As for winds, the easterly component
will continue to prevail with no afternoon diurnal wind shifts
anticipated.

Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.

Fire weather Very isolated showers and storms possible again
today to the south and west of tucson, although not to the areal
extent as what was seen on Sunday. Drier air will move into the area
on Tuesday along with even warmer temperatures through mid week.

Light winds on Tuesday will give way to increased speeds on
Wednesday as a weather system passes to our north. This weather
system will result in scattered showers as early as Wednesday
afternoon north and east of tucson with these showers persisting
into Thursday as cooler temperatures move in. A drying trend will
commence Friday, though a few showers are possible in the white
mountains.

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.
