Synopsis Hot, near or above record temperatures are expected
today and Wednesday with dry conditions through early Wednesday.

Increasing moisture late Wednesday onward will bring scattered
thunderstorms to the area with cooler, near normal temperatures this
weekend.

Discussion The hot temperatures will be the main concern through
Wednesday as more excessive heat can be anticipated today and
Wednesday. Thereafter, the flow pattern becomes more favorable for
deeper moisture pooled south of the region to spread back into
southeast arizona. This moisture increase will result in moderating
temperatures and an upswing in thunderstorm activity for the second
half of the week. Until then, an excessive heat warning remains in
effect for the lower deserts of arizona today and Wednesday.

Aviation Valid through 21 12z.

Few-sct clouds at 12k-16k ft msl thru the forecast period. A slight
chance of -tsra -shra along the international border mainly near
kdug from about 20 21z through 21 02z. Sfc wind less than 12 knots
and favoring a nwly direction in the afternoon early evening with a
few afternoon gusts to around 15-20 kts. Aviation discussion not
updated for TAF amendments.

Fire weather Limited moisture today will result in any
shower thunderstorm development remaining confined to areas along
the international border from nogales eastward and in the white
mountains. Near record high temperatures are expected through
Wednesday. A return to more typical monsoonal moisture is expected
to arrive in the area starting Wednesday afternoon and continuing
into the weekend. Thunderstorm coverage initially will be east of
tucson, then increasing and shifting westward later in the week.

Thunderstorms that do develop may produce gusty and erratic outflow
winds. Otherwise, 20-ft winds will generally follow normal diurnal
trends at less than 15 mph.

Twc watches warnings advisories
Excessive heat warning from 11 am today to 8 pm mst Wednesday
for azz501-502-504>506-509.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
