Synopsis A few thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon mainly near the
white mountains. Otherwise, dry conditions into early next week. A
strong warming trend will occur Wednesday into Friday before cooler
temperatures return by early next week.
Discussion Upper trough continues this evening over the
southwestern CONUS southern rockies, and a 567 dm low was centered
just south of this forecast area, or over northern sonora mexico.
Showers and thunderstorms that brought generally under one quarter
of an inch of rainfall this afternoon subsequently dissipated around
or shortly after sunset.
The highest rainfall amounts occurred mainly across the white
mountains, while valley locales received mostly trace-amounts or
just a few hundredths of an inch. Gusty outflows also accompanied
the showers and thunderstorms, but winds had diminished to less than
10 mph across much of the area as of 9 pm mst.
The official forecast was updated earlier this evening to account
for the earlier onset of precip-free conditions versus the inherited
forecast. Clouds should gradually dissipate the rest of tonight and
yield clear skies or mostly clear skies by daybreak Wednesday.
Warmer temps are on tap Wednesday with a strong warming trend
continuing Thursday into Friday.
Please refer the additional sections for further detail.

Fire weather Dry weather returns by Wednesday with the exception
of the white mountains, where lingering showers are possible in the
afternoon. Winds will generally be less than 15 mph Wednesday
through Friday. Southwest winds will be gusty at times this
weekend, especially during the afternoon hours. Daytime minimum
humidity in the teens this week but falling into the single digits
Saturday and Sunday.
Prev discussion 312 pm mst Current satellite and radar imagery
continues to show isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms
across SE az. The most activity continues to be across portions of
graham greenlee counties and across SE pinal and central pima
counties. This activity is currently producing brief moderate
rainfall, frequent lightning, and gusty outflow winds to 45 mph.
Even localized blowing dust will be a possibility with any
decaying shower or storm. By this evening, activity should
gradually diminish as we lose daytime heating.
The second half of the week will see a strong, long period, low
amplitude ridge build in from the south and west. That will
quickly push temperatures back to around 10 to 12 degrees above
average Thursday into the weekend. Mid to upper 90s from tucson
westward by Friday.
Twc watches warnings advisories None.

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.
