... Excessive heat warning remains in effect from 10 am MST /10 am
PDT/ Wednesday to 8 PM MST /8 PM PDT/ Thursday...

An excessive heat warning remains in effect from 10 am MST /10 am
PDT/ Wednesday to 8 PM MST /8 PM PDT/ Thursday.

* Affected area... the greater Phoenix metropolitan area... the
southwest and west-central deserts in Arizona including Parker...
Yuma... Tacna... Gila Bend and Coolidge. The lower deserts in
southeast California including the Imperial Valley... and the cities
of el centro and Blythe.


* Temperature... afternoon temperatures Wednesday and Thursday will
range from 112 to 118 degrees across the lower deserts. Overnight
lows will be very warm... in the upper 80s to low 90s at the warmest
urban sites.

* Impacts... exceedingly high temperatures can cause heat related
illness... including death... more easily than an average Summer day.
Those working or playing outdoors... and those without air
conditioning are most vulnerable. Even healthy individuals are at
risk in these conditions.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Never leave kids or pets unattended in cars. Drink more water
than usual and avoid alcohol... sugar... and caffeine. When
outdoors... wear light colored clothing and a wide-brimmed hat to
keep your head and body cooler. Take frequent rest breaks in
shaded or air conditioned environments. Public places with air
conditioning include libraries... community centers... government
buildings... malls... and special Refuge stations.

Recognize the signs and symptoms of heat illness. Early symptoms
include things such as headache... thirst... and muscle cramps.
Serious symptoms include weakness... skin that is cool to the
touch... fast but weak pulse... nausea... and fainting. Severe
symptoms include hot and red dry skin... fast and strong pulse...
sweating that has stopped... and unconsciousness. Untreated heat
illness can lead to fatal heat stroke.

Stay cool... stay hydrated... stay informed.





 Air Quality Alert  Statement as of 11:28 am MST on July 22, 2014


... High pollution advisory for Maricopa County including the greater
Phoenix area Wednesday...

The Arizona department of environmental quality in Phoenix has issued
an ozone high pollution advisory for the greater Phoenix area for
Wednesday.

This means that forecast weather conditions combined with existing
ozone levels are expected to result in local maximum 8-hour ozone
concentrations that pose a health risk. Adverse health effects
increase as air quality deteriorates.

Ozone is an air contaminant which can cause breathing difficulties
for children as well as persons with respiratory problems. A decrease
in physical activity is recommended.

If it is a regularly scheduled work day... you are urged to car pool...
telecommute... or use mass transit.

The use of gasoline-powered equipment should be reduced or done late
in the day.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
1010 PM MST Tuesday Jul 22 2014 




Synopsis... 
a strong high pressure system is forecast to develop over the region 
this week...resulting in very hot temperatures Wednesday through 
Friday. At same time...monsoon moisture will slowly increase over 
the area...with occasional cloudiness at times. Increased 
moisture...combined with several weak weather disturbances from 
Mexico...are forecast to increase the chance of afternoon and 
evening showers and thunderstorms...mainly across Arizona...this 
weekend and early next week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
storm activity limited to Southeast Arizona this evening and 
trending downward as of this writing. More activity further 
southeast over Sonora and Chihuahua but nothing extraordinary. 
Anticipate the debris cloudiness to drift north and northwestward 
overnight and into Wednesday morning. It may be a bit thicker than 
what we had today but we will be starting off warmer and the net 
effect over south-central Arizona will be little change. Will nudge 
up Phoenix area maximum temperature for Wednesday leading to a record tying 
114. This could wind up being the wrong direction if clouds get 
thick enough and linger. Would still expect at least 110 in a 
/cooler/ scenario. Further west over southwest Arizona and southeast 
California...skies will be clear and so another few degrees of 
warming is on track. 00z NAM and GFS indicate something of an 
inverted trough moving across far northwest Mexico and southern 
Arizona Wednesday though this feature is not distinctly obvious in 
the satellite imagery. Of more importance...they both depict deeper 
moisture pushing further west and in turn develop a broader area of 
convection for Wednesday. NAM is more aggressive than GFS...a switch 
from 18z runs. Thus GFS does would suggest storms over the higher 
terrain struggling to survive on the low deserts but yielding 
significant outflows. Depending upon Wednesday convection Thursday 
could actually be warmer. Both NAM and GFS are drier for Southeast 
Arizona Thursday. 


&& 


Previous discussion issued 300 PM... 
tonight through Thursday... 
a strong warm-up was underway across the forecast area...including 
the south central Arizona deserts where variable clouds had developed 
earlier in the day...and an early 109 degree f temperature in Phoenix at 1245 
PM (which was our forecast high for the day). 


Earlier concerns...since an excessive heat watch was posted for all 
the deserts between southeast California to south central Arizona...was how much 
insolation would be reduced...from the clouds/humidity...causing a 
reduction in the potential surface heating. Obviously today the 
clouds made little difference in the strong early day warm-up. 
Therefore since there is no major moisture surge forecast tonight 
and Wednesday...we decided to upgrade the excessive heat watch to a 
warning for all the lower deserts between Imperial California and 
Phoenix Arizona. 


Variable clouds and even a few showers and thunderstorms may be in 
the offing over the mountains east of Phoenix on Wednesday...with perhaps 
a late day convective outflow boundary descending onto the deserts 
with possible blowing dust. 


On Thursday...a drier airmass moves into the region from the east. 
500 mb temperatures warm to an unseasonable minus 4 degree c indicating 
stability and a reduced threat for mountain afternoon convection. 
Precipitation probabilities were also lowered in the mountains east of 
Phoenix. 


Friday through Monday... 
cooler afternoon temperatures are forecast this period as higher 
humidities are expected...along with a better threat for afternoon 
and evening convection. 


&& 


Climate... 


Record high temperature for the middle of the week.

&& 


Aviation... 
south-central Arizona including kphx...kiwa...and ksdl... 
southeast California and southwest Arizona including kipl and kblh... 


Anticipate slow increase of debris clouds from Southeast Arizona and 
Sonora overnight tonight and lingering for much of the daytime 
Wednesday...bases generally at or above 15 kft. Anticipate southwest and 
west winds transition to southeast winds by sunrise and linger for 
much of the day. Anticipate thunderstorms to get closer to Phoenix 
area airfields Wednesday evening. Confidence too low at this point 
to insert tempo thunderstorms and rain in the taf/S but anticipate outflows from 
distant storms to be more likely. 


Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
Thursday through Monday... 
strong high pressure will remain the predominant weather feature 
across the region. Biggest impact will be the heat...with above 
normal temperatures likely through early next week. The trend will 
be towards increasing moisture each day...though thunderstorms will 
mainly be concentrated in the higher terrain of eastern Arizona. Across 
the lower deserts of Arizona...isolated thunderstorms will be 
possible...particularly during the weekend...though the greater 
threat is for outflow boundaries capable of producing strong wind 
gusts. Further west across southeast California...the chance for rain and 
thunderstorm impacts will be even lower. Minimum humidities will 
generally fall into a 15-20 percent range with good overnight 
recovery.
