Synopsis Cooler today and Friday before high pressure brings a
warming trend over the weekend and into next week.

Discussion The positively tilted trough ahead of the main low
has lifted north of our area this morning, with convective bands
now generally north of our area. The weakening low itself is in
the process off cycling and reconsolidating just northwest of our
area with a track that will keep us on the southern fringes of
it's remaining influence. We may see a few showers in the
mountains of graham and greenlee counties northeast of tucson, but
that should be about it. A cooler airmass with temperatures down
10 to 12 degrees today and Friday.

Still looking at a mixture of shortwave ridging and a breezy
westerly flow over the weekend as another impulse passes north of
our area Sunday. Temperatures will climb back to near average for
late march.

Solid ensemble mean agreement on an amplification of the flow
upstream and downstream early next week, with our area under a
strong ridge and temperatures climbing to around 10 to 15 degrees
above average. We may flirt with our first 90 degree day of the
year in tucson on Tuesday. Typical transition season stuff with
the storm track further north the rest of next week.

Aviation Valid through 22 12z.

Scattered -shra mostly near the white mountains northeast of
ksad. OtherwiseVFR ceilings and visibilities. Surface winds
generally under 10 kts this morning, becoming westerly 8-18 kts
with gusts near 25 kts this afternoon before diminishing in the
evening. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.

Fire weather Scattered showers mostly near the white mountains
today and Friday. Dry conditions this weekend and into the middle
of the upcoming week. After gusty westerly winds diminish tonight,
20-foot winds will generally be terrain driven and under 15 mph
into early next week.

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. 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.
