Synopsis The record heat will break this week, but still be
several degrees above average today and Tuesday. We still have
enough moisture around for another afternoon and early evening
with isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms. Thereafter,
drying will significantly limit thunderstorms the remainder of
Discussion Another very warm morning with the tucson morning low
of 83 degrees. This breaks the previous record high minimum of 82
from 2002 assuming it doesn't drop lower by midnight. 12z ktwc
sounding still showing decent moisture with a pwat value of 1.17
inches. However, drier and modestly warmer air just above 500 mb
with a much more discernible inversion on the sounding. The drier
air can be seen on WV imagery as well being advected in on northerly
to northwesterly flow aloft around the 500 mb high centered across
northern baja. Model guidance, both synoptic and convective allowing
are in good agreement regarding convection this afternoon initiating
over the mountains primarily from tucson eastward and southward. The
flow pattern will drive the thunderstorms and associated outflows
towards the south today with some isolated coverage moving into the
valleys primarily of graham, greenlee, cochise and santa cruz
counties. However, with that said, we aren't expected widespread
storms in the valleys. Otherwise, while temperatures will remain
just below excessive heat levels, it will still be quite hot.
As the subtropical high remains to our south and weakens slightly
for the next few days with increased westerly flow aloft, this will
allow drier air to move into the forecast area. For Tuesday, just a
slight chance of thunderstorms mainly across portions of cochise
county, then just a few build-ups along the international border the|
remainder of the work week. Temperatures will cool down a couple of
degrees this week but still slightly above normal which is still
quite hot. Signs are there that some increased moisture will sneak
back in by early next week, but we'll have to wait and see how that

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
