Synopsis Expect dry conditions with mild temperatures again
today. A low pressure system will bring a chance of showers late
tonight into early Wednesday, mainly northeast of tucson. Cooler
temperatures will also occur Tuesday followed by a warming trend
Wednesday into Thursday. The next system will bring another chance
of showers and cooler temperatures Friday into next weekend. Over
all, each passing system will bring strong and gusty winds.

Discussion Latest models continued to show an active weather
pattern for this week with a couple of systems slated to pass
through the region. The first upper low was projected to move into
the four corners region Tuesday morning before entering the southern
plains by Wednesday morning. Initially, this system will bring
strong and gusty winds to southeast arizona as early as this
afternoon. The strongest wind associated with this system will be on
Tuesday as a northwesterly flow develops behind the exiting upper
low. This will especially be the case in the upper gila river valley
around safford. Rain chances appeared to be rather slim this far
south, with the exception of the white mountains of east-central
arizona. After a cool down on Tuesday, models build a ridge of high
pressure over the desert southwest on Wednesday and Thursday.

Daytime temperatures will peak Thursday before another system starts
to impact the region Friday into the weekend. The initial track of
this second system will be similar to the first one, with the best
chance of precipitation remaining north of the area.

Aviation Valid through 28/12z.

Few-sct clouds around 10k-15k ft agl and sct-bkn clouds above 20k ft
agl into early this evening, then mainly sct-bkn clouds 6-10k ft agl
into Tuesday morning. Isolated -shra/-shsn may occur across the
white mountains NE of ksad this evening into Tuesday morning.

Surface winds mostly less than 12 kts this morning, then swly to
nwly 12-20 kts with gusts near 25 kts this afternoon before tapering
off to less than 12 kts after 28/04z. Aviation discussion not
updated for TAF amendments.

Fire weather Expect low humidities, mild daytime temperatures
and breezy conditions today, especially in cochise county where near
critical fire weather conditions will be possible. A low pressure
system will then bring cooler temperatures and a chance of showers
tonight and Tuesday, especially to graham and greenlee county.

Farther south in southern fire weather zones 151 and 152, windy
conditions and low humidities will result in brief and localized
critical fire weather conditions Tuesday. Afternoon breezes will
continue Wednesday and Thursday with warming temperatures. Another
weather system will move in by Friday with more gusty winds along
with another chance of showers and cooler temperatures Friday into
next weekend.

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.
