Synopsis High pressure will bring warmer temperatures the
rest of the week before a weather system cools things down over
the weekend into early next week.
Discussion A benign and relatively uneventful pattern over the
next week for southeast arizona. High pressure building into the
desert southwest will bring warmer temperatures the next few days.
Heights and thicknesses support afternoon highs 6 to 8 degrees
above average today and tomorrow.
Broad troughiness will phase in from the west late Thursday
through the weekend. The resulting cooling trend will push
temperatures down a few degrees below average by Sunday and
Monday. A couple of weak impulses carving into the base of the
trough will pass just north of our area. Limited moisture this far
south so no significant chance of showers. Just the cooling and
some breeziness at times.
A higher amplitude ridge anchored near the west coast will push
temperatures back above average by next Tuesday afternoon. The
tropics may see another system or two organize south of mexico,|
but the shear environment will remain poor for any additional
development and movement north of that area. ECMWF weeklies
suggest modestly positive surface height anomalies (warm) for the
second half of the month followed by neutral to start november.
Aviation Valid through 17 12z.
Mostly clear. Sfc wind generally less than 10 kts this morning
thru 16 15z, then increasing ely sely wind, with sfc wind at 12-18
kts and gusts to 20-25 kts. Aviation discussion not updated for
Fire weather Dry conditions are expected the next 7 days.
Elevated easterly winds will occur later this morning, with
sustained 20-foot winds of 15 to 20 mph, locally stronger in a few
locations. Southwest to west winds of 15 mph or less then return
on Thursday and continue through the upcoming weekend. Daytime
relative humidity values will lower over the weekend into next
week into the upper single digits to middle teens.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
