Synopsis Slight chance for valley rain and mountain snow in the
white mountains this afternoon as a weather system moves off to the
east. Strong warming over the weekend with temperatures above normal
will give way to another system early next week. This will cause
below normal to normal temperatures through the middle of the week
and a slight chance for precipitation in the white mountains Tuesday.
Discussion Radar shows some weak echoes just to the north of our
cwa in the white mountains as the upper level low moves into the
texas panhandle. Latest hi-res model guidance shows just a few weak
rain snow showers this afternoon mainly over the white mountains.
Because of this have left in a slight chance to chance of valley
rain mountain snow for the remainder of the afternoon. Winds will
remain gusty for areas east of tucson through the early evening. The
highest speeds will be in the safford area, which has seen a max
gust of 39 knots at ksad, and along the az nm border.
A ridge sets in over the weekend along with a warming trend with
high temperatures Sunday 10 degrees above normal. Monday into
Tuesday another upper level low will move through the region
ushering in colder temperatures and another round of gusty westerly
winds. 18 12z deterministic and ensemble model guidance has this
system bringing in a slight chance of precip for the white mountains
early Tuesday morning. However, the area that would be affected is
rather small and confidence is low at this time due to the models
going back and forth on precip chances. Temperatures will be below|
normal Monday through the middle of the week with low temperatures
approaching freezing in the tucson metro area Wednesday morning.
It's possible that low lying areas near washes and drainages could
get down to freezing.
Aviation Valid through 20 00z.
Sct cloud bases 4-7k ft above valley floors NE of kcgz-ktus-kdug
with isold mtn obscurations and -shrasn NE of ksad until
19 01z... Then skies clearing. NW surface winds 10-20 kts gusting to
25-30kts east of ktus... Diminishing by 19 03z. There is the chance
for a period of easterly surface winds sustained near 15kts at ktus
Saturday morning. Aviation discussion not updated for taf
Fire weather The storm system that brought gusty winds to
eastern areas today will exit the area leaving calmer conditions
this weekend. High temperatures on Sunday will be the warmest of the
new year. The warmup will be short lived as another weather system
will pass through early next week bringing cooler temperatures.
Gusty southwest west winds are forecast for Monday with similar
speeds to today. There will also be a slight chance of snow showers
in the white mountains early Tuesday morning. The rest of the work
week should be dry.
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.
