Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tucson AZ 329 AM MST Wed Apr 8 2020

SYNOPSIS. A weather system will bring a cooling trend the second half of the week along with gusty winds and spotty showers at times. A few thunderstorms possible late Friday and Friday night before a warming trend returns over the weekend.

DISCUSSION. The strong low we have been watching dig down the west coast is now spinning near the southern California coastline with plenty of shower activity in San Diego County this morning. As this system slowly shifts inland, most of our area will see another day of dry conditions and relatively warm temperatures. Our main story today will be gusty winds developing out of the southwest as the surface gradient tightens ahead of the low. For now, most shower activity will remain west and northwest of our area.

With little higher latitude support, the low is going to wobble around southern CA, western AZ and far southern NV for about 72 hours before finally kicking through our area and eastward on Friday and Saturday. Even as it fills, we should still see enough of a cold pool to see a few showers and thunderstorms as this happens, with best chances now slipping to Friday afternoon and Friday night for SE AZ. As discussed previously over the last several days, not at all unexpected with a low in this position this time of year.

We'll see warmer temperatures behind the system, but it won't go too crazy with a long period mean trough position over much of the CONUS.

AVIATION. Valid through 09/12Z. FEW-SCT clouds 12K-15k ft MSL. After 08/14Z isold to sct showers will be possible in the western half of Pima county. Surface winds increasing this morning into the afternoon out of the southwest at 15-25 kts with gusts around 35 kts. Diminishing overnight but remaining breezy in some locations. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.

FIRE WEATHER. Additional moisture will bring increasing shower chances west and north/northeast of Tucson starting Wednesday morning into Wednesday night. Dry conditions to prevail Thursday. Late Friday and Friday night will see a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms over most of the area with precip chances decreasing from west to east Saturday. Precip chances then return Monday mainly from Tucson eastward. Gusty afternoon 20-foot winds remain through much of the period from a southwesterly to westerly direction. The strongest winds are expected today from the southwest 15-20 mph, with gusts around 30 mph.

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.
