Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tucson AZ 432 AM MST Sat Apr 4 2020

SYNOPSIS. Dry conditions and warm daytime temperatures through Tuesday. A weather system may bring a few showers as early as Wednesday, although somewhat better rain chances will prevail late next week with cooler temperatures.

DISCUSSION. Similar weather through early next week as a dry zonal flow continues across the area. Temperatures will remain a few degrees above average through Monday or Tuesday.

A pair of strong impulses are deepening the mean trough position through western states with a split down the coast over the next several days.

A new consolidated low will ultimately bottom out near the southern California coast before filling a bit as it shifts slowly inland the second half of the new week. A position like that is usually going to end up being less progressive than most current and ensemble model resolutions, so timing is still a question. If we do end up with a slower (and subsequently a little further south) progression of the low across the state, we will have more time for a deeper moisture feed. As of now, total QPF values are rather low, but that could change depending on the track. With a not inconsiderate mid level cold pool, we'll also have a few thunderstorms mixed in.

With timing issues, Saturday is a little uncertain but we should be wrapping things up by then with a dry flow and warming trend by Sunday.

AVIATION. Valid through 05/12Z. Mainly SKC through the forecast period. Winds increase this afternoon SWLY 12-18 kts with gusts to around 25 kts. Strongest speeds will be SE of KTUS, decreasing light and variable during the evening. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.

FIRE WEATHER. Dry and breezy conditions prevail through Tuesday next week. Shower chances then begin to increase on Wednesday, with a slight chance of thunder during the afternoon/evening. Possible showers continue on Thursday, lingering northeast of Tucson on Friday. Gusty afternoon winds remain through much of the period from a southwesterly to westerly direction.

TWC WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. None.

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.
