UPDATE
Updated 00z Aviation Discussion...

.SYNOPSIS… Dry conditions will persist through the beginning of next week.
Below normal temperatures today will rapidly warm to above normal by the middle of the week. Lower desert temperatures will climb to the mid-to-upper 90s by the end of this week. The 90 degree afternoon temperatures, for the lower deserts, will continue through the weekend and into the beginning of next week. Higher elevation communities will see temperatures climb into the mid-to- upper 80s.

.DISCUSSION… The Desert Southwest is still under the influence of a closed low that is currently centered over eastern Utah/western Colorado.
This low has brought decreased heights aloft which in turn has brought cooler temperatures to the region. Afternoon high temperatures will be below normal today with temperatures topping out in the upper 70s to low 80s across the lower deserts and upper 60s to low 70s across the higher terrain. This low will quickly move into the Great Plains overnight allowing for heights to increase over the Desert Southwest as a ridge starts to build in.
This increase in heights aloft will allow for temperatures to be about 10 degrees warmer than today and be near normal for this time of year.

For the latter half of the week, a trough in northern CONUS will inhibit a high amplitude ridge to build over the region, which instead will result in zonal flow overhead. Despite zonal flow overhead, the higher heights aloft will allow for afternoon high temperatures to climb above normal and into the mid-to-upper 90s for the lower deserts and into the 80s for the higher terrain.
Global ensemble models depict a weak shortwave trough moving through the region Friday through Saturday allowing for a slight cool down in temperatures, however, temperatures are still expected to be above normal. Afternoon high temperatures are only forecasted to drop into the low-to-mid 90s on Saturday across the lower deserts. Global ensembles depict a weak ridge starting to build in over the Desert Southwest by the end of the weekend and into the beginning of next week. This ridge would allow for temperatures to climb into the upper 90s and near 100 degrees. The NBM currently gives Phoenix a 20-30% chance of reaching 100 degrees next Monday. Forecast confidence is excellent that dry conditions will continue into next week.
