Synopsis High pressure aloft will result in a warming trend
through Thursday, with dry conditions and breezy winds at times. The
warming trend will be interrupted briefly Friday with several
degrees of cooling before resuming this weekend.
Discussion Latest WV satellite shows ridging aloft building
in from the north and west. As a weak baggy trough remains just to
our south, this will combine with surface high pressure to our north
and east to result in some gusty easterly winds developing Wednesday
morning. Overnight morning lows are quite tricky especially for
tucson and are highly dependent on whether the winds keep
temperatures for up. For now, kept morning lows very close to
previous forecast. Otherwise, temperatures will continue to warm
Wednesday to above normal levels.
Less wind on Thursday as the shortwave ridging passes through. The
next trough will skirt by to our north across the great basin
Thursday and to near the four corners Friday. This shortwave is
pretty flat and won't do much more than kick up a breeze or two on
Friday and knock highs down about 5 degrees. This "cooling" will be
short lived as event stronger ridging moves in for the weekend into|
early next week with highs flirting with 80 in tucson by Monday.
Aviation Valid thru 25 00z.
Clear skies as high pressure aloft builds into the area from the
west. Sfc wind sely to nely at less than 12 kts this evening, some
increase in wind from the east up to 20 kts mainly after 24 09z and
continuing Wednesday as surface gradients tighten somewhat. Aviation
discussion not updated for TAF amendments.
Fire weather Dry conditions will prevail over the next week.
Expect easterly winds to increase to around 15 mph Wednesday
afternoon. A few westerly to southwesterly breezes return Friday
with mainly light winds this weekend.
Climate Based on temperatures to date and the 7 day forecast,
it looks like tucson is headed for top 5 warmest january on
record. This would be the fourth straight month with top 5 warmest

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
