Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tucson AZ 306 AM MST Sun Sep 27 2020

SYNOPSIS. Temperatures will cool a few degrees to start the week before high pressure rebuilds and pushes afternoon highs back to near record levels the second half of the week.

DISCUSSION. The eastern flank of the broad ridge of high pressure from the eastern Pacific is weakening over the desert southwest as a trough digs into the northern plains.As it digs immediately downstream we will see a moderately cooler northerly flow over SE AZ. The trailing edge of a back-door cold front from the northeast will push temperatures back to near normal in eastern areas Monday and Tuesday, (primarily east of Tucson). Tucson will likely see a few degrees of cooling but remain several degrees above average.

The hemispheric flow will amplify this week, with a strong ridge of high pressure pushing in from the west by mid week as the trough digs into eastern states and a very strong low reinforces the mean trough position through the Gulf of Alaska. That means Tucson will try to tie or break the record for most 100 degree days (currently at 97 with the record at 99).

AVIATION. Valid through 28/12Z. SKC to FEW thin cirrus AOA 25k ft MSL. Surface winds variable less than 10 kts this morning becoming WLY-NWLY this afternoon 10-15 kts except 15-20 kts with gust up to 30 kts at KSAD. Winds becoming variable and terrain driven less than 10 kts aft 28/04z. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.

FIRE WEATHER. Dry conditions and warmer than normal through the end of September. Expect gusty winds this afternoon and evening especially in the Gila River Valley where localized and brief critical fire weather conditions will be possible. 20-ft winds then become easterly Monday and Tuesday before settling into normal diurnal trends Wednesday into Friday. Min RH values will be in the low teens through Tuesday then drop into the single digits for some locales Wednesday through the end of the week.

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.
