UPDATE
Updated 12Z Aviation Discussion.

SYNOPSIS
Near normal temperatures are expected over the next couple of days before stronger high pressure moves over the region leading to another warm up later this week. Starting Thursday, temperatures will likely top 110 degrees across the south-central Arizona lower deserts with an Excessive Heat Watch in effect for the area on Thursday and Friday. Moisture will also increase across much of southern and central Arizona starting Thursday and this will provide for some shower and thunderstorm chances over the eastern Arizona high terrain into the coming weekend.

DISCUSSION
A Pacific upper level trough has overtaken much of the Western U.S. since yesterday allowing heights across the Desert Southwest to fall. The near normal temperatures as the result of the lower heights will persist through Wednesday with highs today mostly between 101-104 degrees across the lower deserts. By tonight, the main energy from the larger scale trough will already be lifting to the northeast away from our region, while an unseasonably strong ridge centered over the Mid-Atlantic States into New England begins shift southwestward.

Going through the middle part of this week, the trough to our north will continue to weaken and shift away from our region, while the ridge over the Eastern U.S. continues to migrate west southwestward closer to our region. At the same time, a tropical disturbance will be moving westward off the Gulf of Mexico into Mexico. This disturbance will quickly weaken as it progresses inland, but it will leave an inverted trough behind which should attempt to track west northwest across northern Mexico. Moist low to mid level flow in between the tropical disturbance and the upper level ridge across Texas will increase out of the east early on Wednesday reaching New Mexico Wednesday evening. This moisture is expected to continue to track westward Wednesday night reaching eastern Arizona Thursday morning. Guidance shows this moisture spreading westward through much of southern and central Arizona on Thursday increasing surface dew points over the eastern Arizona high terrain into the 50s and providing our first monsoon thunderstorm chances east of Phoenix starting Thursday afternoon.

In addition to the moisture increasing later this week, the ridge will also be spreading westward into our region increasing H5 heights to around 590dm as early as Thursday. Temperatures are forecast to quickly heat up starting Thursday with highs between 110-114 degrees across the south-central Arizona lower deserts.
Temperatures should increase further on Friday areawide with all of the lower deserts likely reaching or exceeding 110 degrees with 112-116 degrees forecast for the Phoenix area. Given the latest NBM forecast temperatures later this week, we have pushed up the timing of the Excessive Heat Watch to start on Thursday and going through Friday. The heat dome will continue to impact the region through the weekend with any daily monsoon higher terrain activity providing little relief from the heat over the lower deserts. In fact, guidance suggests the ridge may strengthen across the region and northern Mexico Sunday into early next week and this could result in additional Excessive Heat headlines over the lower deserts of southeast California.

Our first chances of monsoon showers and thunderstorms are likely to mostly affect higher terrains as forecast moisture levels are not quite high enough to provide the lower deserts with much of a chance. Storm motion steering flow will also favor north northeastward progressing convection which is not favorable for activity making its way into the lower deserts. However, the south-central Arizona lower deserts, including the Phoenix area, may very well have to contend with gusty outflow winds and possibly some blowing dust. This first round of monsoon activity may only last through early next week as guidance favors the ridge sinking farther to the southwest by the middle of next week. This would shift the flow out of the southwest and gradually bring in drier conditions across the region later next week.

AVIATION
Updated at 1135Z.

South-Central Arizona including KPHX, KIWA, KSDL, and KDVT:

Winds will tend to follow their typical diurnal pattern. A period of southerly winds, between 15-22Z, is once again expected to precede the westerly/southwesterly shift later this afternoon.
Wind speeds this afternoon and early evening with generally be around 8-12 kt, with gusts around 20 kt. Winds will then go back easterly during the overnight hours tonight. Mostly clear skies will continue, with FEW high clouds this afternoon.

Southeast California/Southwest Arizona including KIPL and KBLH:

Winds at KIPL will generally be aob 8 kt and have a westerly component through the TAF period. There may be a brief period of sundowner winds tonight with gusts up around 20 kt. At KBLH, current northwesterly winds will go more northerly in a couple hours as a dry front moves through the area. This dry front will caused increased wind speeds with sustained winds around 12-15 kt and gusts of 20-25 kt. Wind speeds will start to subside throughout the afternoon. Winds will then go westerly this evening. Mostly clear skies will continue, with FEW passing high clouds later this morning and into the afternoon.

FIRE WEATHER
Overall light winds are expected over the next couple days with near normal temperatures. The dry conditions will however persist with daily MinRHs around 10% and overnight MaxRHs between 20-40%.
Starting Thursday, moisture will creep into much of southern and central Arizona providing daily shower and thunderstorm chances over the eastern Arizona high terrain. Humidities will also noticeably improve later this week over higher terrain areas, but CWR will stay low at mostly below 10%. Along with the increasing moisture, high pressure is also expected to build back over the region later this week resulting in very hot temperatures and lower desert highs between 110-115 degrees.
