Synopsis The record heat will break this week, but still be
several degrees above average today and Tuesday. We still have
enough moisture around for another afternoon and early evening
with isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms. Thereafter,
drying will significantly limit thunderstorms the remainder of
Discussion Over the next several days, our dominant high
pressure system will weaken and shift south to southwest of the
area, with a modest westerly flow kicking in.
First off, that will mean a retreat from the record heat we've
been seeing over the past week. Still several degrees above
average for late june today and Tuesday, but easing back from
excessive heat levels. It should not be underestimated however,
as 4 to 6 degrees above average for late june is plenty hot.
Another nice early season thunderstorm day yesterday. Surface dew
points remain in the 50s and precipitable water values around 1
inch. We'll begin to see some drying as early as this afternoon,
but there will be enough around for mainly mountain storms, with
a decent chance of strong outflow from southern and eastern
portions of the mogollon rim through graham, greenlee and northern
cochise counties this afternoon and evening. The orientation of
the outflow probably won't see much of an easterly component, with
most of the mass energy propagating southward.
Drier and not as hot Tuesday through the rest of the week, with
just enough moisture to see some mountain buildups near the
Both the GFS and ECMWF are showing signs of life with moisture
nosing back in from the south next Sunday and Monday. Nice h7
theta-e trends as high pressure tries to build east and southeast
of us through chihuahua and new mexico. That would open the door
nicely for deeper moisture early next week, right on time for the
4th of july.

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.
