Synopsis After another cold morning, a warming trend will push
temperatures back to several above average by Friday and into
early next week. Dry conditions with no rain well into next week.

Discussion Dry and chilly again tonight. Even with afternoon
highs around 5 degrees ahead of yesterday, we were able to shed
that quickly after sunset with temperatures currently close to
last night's trends. Bone dry at the surface with dew points down
5 to 15 degrees compared to 24 hours ago (teens). With no cloud
cover or wind to speak of, we went ahead and tweaked the overnight
low forecast down 2 to 4 degrees across the area; closer to last
night. Should see some spots near freezing around tucson again.

Otherwise our dominant weather feature is going to be a strong
ridge just off the west coast. As arctic air pushes deep into the
conus east of us, the ridge will amplify with our corner of the
state in a dry and warming northwesterly flow on the eastern flank
of the ridge. A few impulses on the back side of the mean trough
position will keep our temperatures from jumping too high, but
it's a dry pattern for our area with temperatures several degrees
above average by Friday.

Aviation Valid through 25 06z.

Clear skies with surface winds generally less than 12 kts through
the forecast period. Aviation discussion not updated for taf
amendments.

Fire weather Dry conditions will prevail for the next week. 20-
foot winds will generally be under 15 mph with the exception of
Saturday and early next week where gusty easterly winds will be
possible.

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.
