SYNOPSIS
Temperatures decrease a bit today and Tuesday before heating up again by Thursday. Moisture may begin to increase late next week which would bring the potential for high-based thunderstorms late in the week into this weekend.

DISCUSSION
The sky was clear this morning across southern Arizona per latest satellite imagery. Water vapor imagery this morning showed an upper level trof moving through the PacNW which will continue east today. This feature will bring afternoon breezes this afternoon and elevated fire weather concerns which is addresses in the fire weather section below. Highs today will be cooler than this weekend, around 2 to 6 degrees with biggest change being across western Pima county.

Tuesday: Upper level trofiness continues across the western CONUS with highs at or slightly cooler than today or around mid-June normals.

Wednesday: Upper level heights/low-level thickness values increase for warmer highs temperatures, around 2 to 4 degrees warmer than Tuesday. To our east a rather impressive tropical wave moves inland across Texas and eastern Mexico.

Wednesday night/Thursday morning: Westward push of moisture into New Mexico with above mentioned tropical wave will help fuel thunderstorm activity across New Mexico with thunderstorm outflows sending shallow surface moisture, with dewpoints into the 50s across Graham/Greenlee/Cochise counties Thursday morning.

Thursday: With the increase in moisture, although at the surface they will mix out, there is a slight chance, less than 20% for high-based thunderstorms mainly near the AZ/NM border. Another shallow moisture push west from thunderstorm outflows with surface dewpoints in the 50s making as far west as Picacho to Sasabe line Friday morning.

Friday: Westward push of moisture will bring a 10% chance from western Pima county to a 50% chance near AZ/NM border of showers/thunderstorms with a mix of wet/dry storms. Had to make some slight adjustments down with respect to PoPs as the initialized guidance from NBM was a bit too high, likely driven by the wetter ensemble members from GEPS.

Thursday and Friday will also be hot with heat risk for areas from Tucson west up in the major risk category. Per coordination with WFO Phoenix held off on issuing any heat related products.
Something for later shifts consider.

This upcoming weekend: Chance of thunderstorms each day as elevated moisture for June remains over the area. At this time, high temperatures will be not as hot as Thu/Fri.

RH values then increase 5-10 percent the latter half of the week. Surface winds increase today, with southwest winds of 15-20 mph and gusts to 30-35 mph. A few areas will be near critical fire weather thresholds this afternoon, but at this time we not expecting it to be widespread enough for a warning.
Elevated afternoon/early evening winds of 15-20 mph then continue for much of this week with an uptick in speeds for the eastern zones (Safford area) on Thursday and Friday. By the end of this week, models show an increase in mid-level moisture, resulting in a slight chance mainly dry thunderstorms to the east of Tucson Thursday and and as far west as Tucson Friday and Saturday.
