Synopsis High pressure aloft will result in a warming trend
through Thursday, with dry conditions and breezy winds at times. The
warming trend will be briefly interrupted Friday with several
degrees of cooling before resuming this weekend.

Discussion Dry and warm weather will be the main story into
next week. Our flow will continue to weaken at most levels as a
broad based ridge dominates the desert southwest today. Surface
high pressure building through the central and southern rockies
will enhance the easterly flow across our area today, helping
another 6 or 7 degree jump in temperatures today. Quite dry, with
precipitable water values near or below 1 5 of an inch and surface
dew points in single digits (on both sides of the zero line).

A trough passing north of our area will knock several degrees off
of daytime highs Friday. After that interruption, afternoon highs
will climb to levels around 10 to 12 degrees above average by
Sunday (possibly near 80 around the greater tucson area).

Aviation Valid thru 25 12z.

Clear skies thru the period. Sfc wind ely sely generally 8-15 kts.

The strongest winds will occur late this morning, with a few gusts
to near 20 kts possible. Aviation discussion not updated for taf
amendments.

Fire weather Dry conditions will prevail over the next week.

Easterly 20-ft winds around 15 mph are expected today. Westerly to
southwesterly winds will occur Thursday and Friday. Light, easterly
winds will return this weekend and early next week.

Climate Based on temperatures to date and the 7 day forecast,
it looks like tucson is headed for top 5 warmest january on
record. This would be the fourth straight month with top 5 warmest
ranking.

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.

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.
