NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Tucson Arizona 
230 am MST Monday Oct 20 2014 


Synopsis...a slow moving weather system over northern Mexico will 
keep the chance of rain in the forecast through Tuesday...with the 
most favorable area for storm development shifting into eastern 
areas. Strong high pressure will bring drier conditions the second 
half of the week along with much warmer temperatures. Near record 
high temperatures possible in some locations Thursday into Saturday. 


&& 


Discussion...at 2 am the middle level low continues to track across 
far northern Sonora near the Arizona border...just south of Santa 
Cruz County. This cut-off has filled a little as it drifts very 
slowly eastward. A little bit of middle level drying is starting to eat 
away at some of the available moisture...however .75 to .9 
precipitable water should be enough to see storms return to the area 
this afternoon. 


The most favorable area of upper level diffluence on the active 
eastern to northern portion of the low will further emphasize 
eastern areas today with best storm chances east of Tucson. 
However...it should be noted that instead of yesterday's southerly 
flow...much of the area will be developing an easterly steering 
level flow on the northern flank of the low. This will steer a few 
storms once again toward central areas including the greater Tucson 
area. The best organized areas should be east of Tucson however. 


By late Tuesday the low should start to shear and lift into the 
front of kicker system pushing through the region north of US...with 
a weak trough inflection developing through New Mexico by early 
Wednesday. 


Our attention then shifts to a developing ridge for the second half 
of the week. Medium range resolutions clearly and reasonably develop 
an unseasonably strong ridge building through Arizona Thursday and 
Friday with the ridge axis directly overhead of Southeast Arizona. 
Slightly deeper and slower timing of European model (ecmwf) preferred due to 
continued favorable ensemble mean trends for the initial ridge 
development Thursday and normalized Standard deviation trends over 
the past 30 days (however it should be noted that ensemble trends 
are less favorable for the position of the developing trough through 
the Pacific northwest). With this in mind...height and thickness 
values continue to support afternoon surface highs near record 
levels as early as Thursday with Friday maxing out 850-700mb 
thickness values around 165.6dam. This would support a 93 to 95 at 
tia. If we were to manage a 95 Friday (the 24th) it would be the 
third latest 95 degree date ever for Tucson...with the latest ever 
occurring on the 26th in 2001 and 1934. 


A highly amplified pattern developing which will tend to slow things 
down...however the middle level reflection of the ridge will still 
probably shift into New Mexico by late Saturday. Thickness values 
will still be there for Southeast Arizona for near record highs Saturday...but 
starting to lose middle level height support with trends starting 
down...so probably down a degree or two from Friday. 


Modest cold air advection behind a dry trough (for our latitude) Sunday and Monday 
as afternoon highs drop back toward climatology. 


&& 


Aviation...valid through 21/09z. 
The weak middle level low just south of the border will still have 
enough moisture to work with for a chance of -tsra today...however 
the best area of coverage should be east of ktus. Few-broken clouds 
7-12kft above ground level with generally VFR conditions outside of thunderstorms and rain. Easterly 
surface winds generally less than 10kts outside of gusty outflows 
near any thunderstorms and rain. Aviation discussion not updated for taf amendments. 


&& 


Fire weather...a weak low near the area in combination with modest 
moisture will result in a chance of showers and thunderstorms 
through Tuesday...mainly from Tucson eastward. Dry conditions will 
then occur area wide for the end of the work week with significantly 
above normal high temperatures. 20-foot winds will generally be 
diurnal and less than 15 miles per hour this week. Some gusty winds are 
possible near any thunderstorms. 


&& 


Twc watches/warnings/advisories...none.
