Synopsis Plenty of cloud cover to start the week as a weak low
pressure system off the baja california coast moves over northern
mexico Monday into Wednesday, generating a very light shower or
two near the international border. Otherwise conditions will be
dry with above normal temperatures through the week.
Discussion Clouds thickening and lowering a bit this evening.
26k ft this morning, then with the 00z ktwc sounding down to 22k
ft. Still pretty dry in deep and well mixed subcloud layers.
Another night where we see above average lows, and well above the
potential of the airmass. Surface dew points in the teens and
precipitable water below 1 5 of an inch. No real surprises in
latest model output, with a weak low dirtying up the base of the
ridge across sonora and southern portions of our area over the
next 72 hours. We put out a minor update increasing cloud trends
tonight, otherwise the forecast has a good handle on things.
Please see below for additional details.
Aviation Valid thru 11 06z.
Bkn-ovc clouds AOA 20k ft agl, with sct clouds at 10k- 15k ft
agl. Sfc wind diminishing this evening, with ely sely sfc wind at
8-13 kts aft 11 03z. Aviation discussion not updated for taf
Fire weather Aside from a slight chance of showers late Monday
into Tuesday across far southern graham and cochise counties, dry
conditions will persist the next seven days. 20-foot winds will
be east to southeast into Wednesday, with speeds generally
expected to be less than 15 mph.
Prev discussion Mostly cloudy conditions will continue across
the area through Monday night as an an upper low, currently near
the baja spur, moves east into sonora mexico. As this low moves
east it will draw up some higher pw values toward the
international border areas where a few sprinkles are possible
Monday afternoon and night mainly from nogales east.
The upper low will meander across sonora mexico through Wednesday
with cloud cover decreasing across the area. NW flow across the
area for the remainder of the work week into next week.
High temperatures will be above normal through week into next
On a side note, the overnight cloud cover produced a warm low
temperature at the tucson airport of 57 degrees. If this hold
through midnight, this would tie for the warmest minimum
temperature for december 10th.
Twc watches warnings advisories None.

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.
