Synopsis Record or near record high temperatures can be expected
today. Temperatures will gradually decrease the rest of the week,
but remain elevated above normal. Dry conditions will also prevail,
with a period of strong easterly breezes on Tuesday into early
Wednesday.

Discussion Record and or near record high temperatures can be
anticipated today as a ridge of high pressure aloft peaks in
amplitude. Latest models continued to show this ridge of high
pressure remaining over the region for most of the week. After today
though, height and thickness values will lower through the week.

This will result in a gradual lowering of high temperatures.

However, high temperatures will stay well above seasonable normals.

Needless to say, dry conditions can be anticipated this week as
well. Strong and gusty east to southeast winds will develop Tuesday
into Wednesday in response to a tight surface pressure gradient.

Aviation Valid thru 24 12z.

Clear skies and sfc wind generally nely-sely less than 12 kts
through the forecast period. Aviation discussion not updated for taf
amendments.

Fire weather Dry conditions will persist through the week.

High temperatures will warm and surpass record values today and
reach near record values again on Tuesday before a gradual cooling
trend begins. Light easterly winds today will strengthen from the
east southeast on Tuesday into Wednesday, with gusts to 25-35 mph at
times. A few locations in fire weather zone 151 may briefly reach
critical fire weather thresholds late Tuesday morning into the early
afternoon hours. Winds will turn west northwesterly Thursday and
Friday and become breezy once again, especially for areas east of
tucson.

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.
