SYNOPSIS. A warming and drying trend will continue the next several days as high pressure builds across the Desert Southwest. By next Tuesday, above normal temperatures are expected, which will persist through next weekend. Readings in some areas may be the highest so far this year.
Nearly perfect weather conditions as the Southwest remains situated between two upper-level storm systems amidst westerly flow aloft. Temperatures have rebounded 3-5 degrees over yesterday's readings, and are expected to top out near 70 in many desert locations. Winds are also very light across the region as broad surface high pressure has built over the Great Basin and central Rockies. A progressive shortwave trough will move across southern California and Arizona late Sunday into early Monday. The most noticeable effect from this system will be an increase in afternoon breeziness, especially across southeast California. Otherwise, meager moisture will preclude precipitation chances for everywhere but far northern Arizona.
By early next week, rising of midlevel heights across the Southwest will allow substantial lower tropospheric warming to occur, with surface temperatures warming 15-20 degrees over today. Latest forecast guidance has trended slightly warmer towards the end of the week, with the first 90 degree day of the year for both Yuma and Phoenix forecast to occur on Friday. Some areas may see 90 degrees as early as Wednesday or Thursday. Given the very broad cyclonic flow in place across the western CONUS, and the positioning of stronger flow aloft well to the north, very little in the way of weather impacts are expected outside of a low HeatRisk throughout much of next week. There is some indication a very weak upper disturbance could move across northern Arizona late next week, but would once again be dry.
AVIATION. Updated at 1745Z.
South-Central Arizona including KPHX, KIWA, KSDL, and KDVT, and Southeast California/Southwest Arizona including KIPL and KBLH:
No aviation concerns anticipated through Sunday morning. Light winds, generally less than 8 kts, are favored at all terminals with typical diurnal tendencies. Periods of variability are likely, mostly during diurnal wind shifts. Increasing high clouds expected through the afternoon and evening, but should scatter out Sunday morning.
FIRE WEATHER. Monday through Friday: High pressure will build across the Desert Southwest early next week, resulting in a warming trend. Above normal temperatures will return Tuesday and will persist through the end of the week, with high temperatures in the lower deserts potentially flirting with the 90 degree mark late in the week. Minimum RHs will generally drop into the mid teens each afternoon. Meanwhile, winds will be on the light side, however localized afternoon breeziness will remain a possibility.
SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT. Spotters should follow standard reporting procedures.

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.
