Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tucson AZ 253 PM MST Fri Feb 26 2021

SYNOPSIS. Dry and seasonal weather will prevail Saturday. A weather system will a cool down and bring windy conditions to southeast Arizona Sunday, along with a slight chance of snow showers in the White Mountains. After a chilly Monday morning, mild and dry conditions will resume Monday.

DISCUSSION. Fair weather is forecast until Sunday when models continue to show low pressure diving south across NE AZ into SC New Mexico. This will result 5 to 10 degrees of cooling Sunday compared to a mild Saturday. In addition, west or northwest winds will increase markedly with gusts near 40 mph possible in some areas, especially southeast of Tucson. Most areas will remain dry, but a few showers or snow showers could occur Sunday afternoon and evening in the White Mountains.

Cooler air will settle into the area Sunday night, possibly flirting with the freezing mark by Monday morning in Tucson. However, easterly breezes could keep the air stirred up enough to prevent temperatures from falling that far. The Tucson Airport has not reached 32 degrees since January 10.

In any event, temperatures should rebound Monday afternoon and especially Tuesday before the next weather system affects the area. GFS ensemble members continue to favor at least a slight chance of precipitation Wednesday, but mainly north of Tucson, which is reflected in the current forecast. ECMWF members had previously leaned toward a quicker and weaker solution, but the latest operational version shows a slower and wetter scenario for Thursday. Confidence remains low due to the model variations, so stay tuned.

AVIATION. Valid through 28/00Z. Other than SCT clouds AOA 20k ft MSL skies will be mostly clear. SFC wind less than 12 kts except briefly WLY/NWLY around 15 kts with gusts to 20 kts in eastern areas Saturday afternoon. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.

FIRE WEATHER. Critical fire weather conditions are forecast Sunday afternoon into Sunday evening generally southeast of a line from Sonoita to Benson to Safford at the lower elevations where fuels have dried sufficiently for a high fire danger rating. Expect westerly 20-foot winds Sunday over 20 mph with gusts 35 to 40 mph. Otherwise, 20-foot winds will mainly be less than 15 mph before increasing again Wednesday. However, there is some potential for occasional stronger easterly breezes Monday into Tuesday in favored locations. Minimum humidities will remain in the 5-15 percent range each day except Sunday in the White Mountains when there is a slight chance of snow showers. The next chance for precipitation should hold off until Wednesday or Thursday, but confidence in this occurring is still low.

TWC WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. Fire Weather Watch from Sunday afternoon into Sunday evening for southeast AZZ151 and much of AZZ152.

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.
