Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Phoenix AZ 611 PM MST Tue Dec 5 2023

Dry conditions will persist across the region for the foreseeable future. Temperatures will be near record levels over the next couple of days ahead of a cooling trend to near normal going into the weekend.

High amplitude ridging evident in water vapor imagery is dominating over western CONUS early this afternoon. A weak PV anomaly off the southern CA coast is spreading few to scattered high clouds across the Desert Southwest. Otherwise, due to the strong ridging, temperatures will be at near record levels the next couple of days. NBM probabilities of reaching or exceeding the record high in Phoenix today and tomorrow is around 30-40%.

The strong ridging will slide east of the region after tomorrow as strong troughing cutting across the Pacific Northwest begins to dig into the Great Basin. Thus, temperatures will cool more towards normal by the end of the week. Conditions will remain dry however, as the main jet core will remain north of the region, thus enhanced dynamics associated with the jet will not impact southcentral Arizona in terms of precipitation. The anticipated dry cold front moving through late week will result in some enhanced winds, particularly out along the Colorado River Valley, where winds gusting in excess of 30 mph is in the 30-50% range for Friday.

Heading into the weekend, cooler temperatures will persist as dry northwesterly flow persists. However, mid-level heights will slowly build going into early next week, thus temperatures are expected to warm during this period. Ensemble clusters remains in excellent agreement into Monday in regards to ridging building across the West Coast. Clusters become more muddled in regards to the next trough diving southwards across the Intermountain West and High Plains, affecting how long the ridge will reside over the region going into the middle of next week. Regardless of differences, there will be no threat for precipitation across the region for at least the next week.
