Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tucson AZ 220 AM MST Fri Jan 22 2021
SYNOPSIS. A break in the precipitation chances can be expected today, but the weather pattern will remain unsettle this weekend into next week as a series of systems pass through the region. Each system will bring cooler temperatures along with gusty winds and brief periods of valley rain and mountain snow.
DISCUSSION. Looking at some patchy fog early this morning in the wake of yesterday's weather system. Otherwise, Arizona will be in between systems today but the weather pattern will remain unsettled this weekend into next week. Latest models showed the next system impacting the Desert Southwest mainly this weekend, but a few showers can be anticipated along the Mogollon Rim into the White Mountains in advance of this next storm. Not much of a break in the wet and breezy weather as another system bears down on Arizona Monday into Tuesday. That said, expect gusty winds and brief periods of valley rain and mountain snow with each passing weather system. Models were advertising a break in the weather around Wednesday into Friday before yet another storm system approaches the region next weekend. High temperatures will remain several degrees below average.
AVIATION. Valid through 23/12Z. Thru 22/17Z, SCT-BKN clouds at 6k-9k ft MSL mainly east of a KALK to KSAD line, with FEW-SCT clouds at 7k-11k ft MSL west of this line. Aft 22/17Z, FEW-SCT clouds areawide at 7k-11k ft MSL. SFC wind generally less than 12 kts and variable in direction thru 22/19Z and then again aft 23/02Z. Between 22/19Z and 23/02Z, SLY/SWLY SFC wind at 8-14 kts with some gusts to around 20 kts. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.
FIRE WEATHER. Dry and cooler across southeast Arizona today, with daytime highs right around normal and light 20-foot winds. A series of colder storm systems will then move across the region this weekend into next week, for a continued chance of valley rain and much lower snow levels late Saturday into Sunday and then again Monday through Tuesday. Some breezy winds are expected during this unsettled weather period.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
