Update Updated aviation discussion.

Synopsis
The warming trend will continue through midweek as high pressure
builds across the desert southwest. Daytime temperatures will peak
Tuesday with highs approaching the 90 degree mark across the lower
deserts. Somewhat cooler and breezy conditions are expected late in
the week as a low pressure system passes by to the north.

Discussion
The warming trend will continue with a return to above normal
temperatures likely by tomorrow. Lower desert high temperatures in
the 80s will then persist through at least Wednesday as high
pressure predominates across the desert southwest. High temperatures
will flirt with the 90 degree mark in phoenix Tuesday, which is
close to the 30-year average of the first 90 degree reading on march
31st.

Models are in generally good agreement depicting a weak short wave
trough moving through the four corners Wednesday Thursday.

Low-level mixing ratios at or below 3 g kg will preclude
rainfall, though the system will bring cooler conditions and periods
of breeziness each afternoon Wednesday through Friday. Operational
gfs and ensemble solutions suggest another short-wave trough will
reinforce the breeziness Saturday while keeping temperatures within a
few degrees of normal.

Aviation Updated at 0528 utc.

South-central arizona including kphx, kiwa, ksdl, and kdvt:
no aviation weather concerns are expected with continued dry
tranquil conditions prevail. Skies will be partly to mostly
cloudy with cirrus tonight and into Sunday morning. Winds will
remain light and diurnal at all TAF sites.

Southeast california southwest arizona including kipl and kblh:
some lingering moderate westerly to northwesterly winds very early
in the period tonight are expected at both kipl and kblh. For
Sunday expect light winds as high pressure builds across the
region. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy with cirrus tonight
and into Sunday morning.

Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs.

Fire weather
Monday through Friday:
there is minimal change to the intermediate forecast for next
week. The main weather concern for this period will be breezy
afternoons, especially across southeast california, western
arizona and any exposed ridge tops. The days with the strongest
afternoon breezes will be Tuesday through Thursday as a dry
frontal system pushes through the region with gusts as strong as
25 mph possible. Winds across central arizona will not be as
problematic until Wednesday afternoon. The region will undergo a
drying trend with minimum relative humidity values dropping below
15 each afternoon across the lower desert, while remaining near
20 percent in the mountainous areas. Overnight recoveries will be
in the 40-50 percent range. Otherwise, temperatures peak near 90
degrees Tuesday before a slight cooldown.

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.
