Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tucson AZ 149 PM MST Wed Apr 17 2024

High pressure will bring dry conditions and a strong warming trend into next week. A weak passing weather system will bring breezy conditions on Friday.

Skies are clear across southeastern Arizona with temperatures 4-8 degrees above this time yesterday. This warming trend will continue into the end of the work week as the main storm track remains well to the north, which keeps Arizona under positive height anomalies. Still a chance for Tucson to hit 95 degrees Thursday and Friday with the NBM giving a 16 and 22 percent chance respectively each day.

A weak shortwave will move through Friday into Saturday leading to breezy winds Friday and lingering breezes east of Tucson Saturday.
It will also provide a few degrees of cooling Saturday, but high temperatures will still be 4-6 degree above normal. This "cooldown" will be short-lived as heights increase again into early next week. This will lead to Tucson making another run at 95 by Monday. Then ensembles hint at Pacific low moving through the region mid to late next week which could lead to a cool down and increase in winds.

Valid through 19/00Z.
SKC through the evening becoming SCT 25k ft AGL after 18/12Z.
Typical diurnal wind trends generally less than 10 kts, westerly in the afternoon and variable other times. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.

Dry with a strong warming trend across SE AZ into next week. Minimum relative humidity values generally below 12% in valleys, dropping to single digits at times. Typical diurnal wind trends most of the week, with a breezy Friday afternoon as a weak dry weather system pushes across.
