Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tucson AZ 232 AM MST Wed Aug 5 2020
SYNOPSIS. High pressure over the region will continue to maintain hotter than normal temperatures this week, despite a slight cooling Thursday and Friday. Daily thunderstorm chances will also continue, but a drier southwesterly flow will limit thunderstorm activity early next week.
DISCUSSION. Thunderstorm chances will continue to be fickle the next several days with no strong signals suggesting one day will be more active than the other. However, hotter than normal high temperatures will continue with some high degree of confidence. That said, a few models point to a slight uptick in thunderstorm activity Thursday as trough of low pressure deepens along the West Coast. This feature may provide enough upper-level support in combination with the current moisture and daytime heating to embrace the notion of more thunderstorm activity. Although, this might be a stretch. None the less, the overall trend of a drier southwesterly flow limiting thunderstorm chances early next week still looked on track.
AVIATION. Valid through 06/12Z. SCT-BKN clouds AOA 10-14k ft MSL through much of the period. Afternoon and evening isolated to scattered SHRA/TSRA from mainly KTUS south and east with the best chances along the International border from KOLS eastward. Any storm activity will diminish after 06/03Z. SFC winds less than 10 kts this morning becoming westerly around 10 kts this afternoon with a few higher gusts before diminishing this evening. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.
FIRE WEATHER. Above normal temperatures continue through the weekend. Isolated to scattered mainly afternoon and evening thunderstorms favoring locations from Tucson south and eastward the through Thursday, then mainly areas east and south of Tucson Friday into early next week as some drier air moves in from the west. 20- foot winds will generally follow typical diurnal patterns at less than 15 mph. However, thunderstorms may produce wind gusts in excess of 40 mph.
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.
