NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Tucson Arizona 
245 am MST sun Aug 30 2015 


Synopsis...another good chance of showers and thunderstorms this 
afternoon and Monday. Some storms will generate strong winds and 
locally heavy rainfall...with areas of blowing dust possible. A slow 
drying trend will then limit thunderstorms to east of Tucson the 
second half of the week. Hotter than average temperatures will fall 
to near average around the middle of the week. 


&& 


Discussion...weak flow with slow clearing continuing this morning 
from the remains of last night's convection. Moisture holding pretty 
well with precipitable water values around 1.1 to 1.35 across 
Southeast Arizona. Another interesting day in store today. 


The large scale pattern shows a weakening ridge over the Desert 
Southwest...caught in a squeeze play between the regional trough 
northwest and north of our area...and a decent low near central and 
southwest Texas. The 300mb inflection of these features put a high 
center just south of US with the low over southwest Texas showing up 
very well at 300 mb relatively well stacked. The resulting upper level 
flow shows good divergence over Southeast Arizona this afternoon. 
That will help organize some storms over the area...with the 
resulting organization helping to develop strong outflows again this 
afternoon. This will be important since the middle level and storm 
level flows remain so weak. The 700 mb Theta-E ridge that we saw west of 
Tucson yesterday will also shift further east to a position over 
eastern Pima and Santa Cruz counties this afternoon. These two 
features will tend to focus our best activity initially from eastern 
Pima and Santa Cruz counties eastward this afternoon...with an 
outflow assist into portions of the tohono o'odham nation and south 
central Pinal County later. 


For Monday...both of these features (the 700 mb Theta-E ridge and 
favorable upper level diffluent area) shift eastward as the 
southwesterly flow slowly increases across western portions of the 
state. That will put our area of focus mainly from Tucson eastward. 


By Tuesday and Wednesday the southwesterly flow will slowly start to 
take it's toll on our moisture. There's only so long the deeper 
moisture can hold on immediately to our west. Diminishing activity 
for much of our area Tuesday afternoon with most of the storms east 
of Tucson. 


The remnants of the ridge will basically have filled by then. We 
probably won't have completely dried out for the simple fact the 
flow at our latitude won't be strong enough to scour US out. The 
thunderstorm coverage however will be below average at best by 
Friday. 


The large scale flow isn't favorable for monsoon activity next 
week...however the eastern Pacific tropics are getting busy again 
and with this mean trough position hanging on through the northern 
and central Great Basin...we might be able to coax some peripheral 
tropical influences in our general direction by then. 


&& 


Aviation...valid through 31/12z. Scattered layered clouds with decks around 
8 to 12 kft...continuing to clear overnight and through the early 
morning becoming few-skc. Clouds will then be on the increase late 
this morning through the afternoon with another round of scattered 
rain showers/thunderstorms and rain in store. Similar to Saturday...shra/tsra areal coverage 
will be relatively widespread and continue into the early evening 
hours. Brief MVFR conditions and gusty winds to 45 kts will be 
possible in and around the stronger storms. Outside of thunderstorm 
influence surface winds will generally be under 10 kts. Aviation 
discussion not updated for taf amendments. 


&& 


Fire weather...another round of scattered showers and thunderstorms 
today...with relatively similar coverage to Saturday...only less 
activity over the far western zones. Prime concern today is strong 
winds and heavy rain due to slow motions. This basic idea will 
continue early this week...with daily afternoon and evening storms 
expected. Starting Monday storms will tend to be more focused over 
eastern zones...with significantly diminished thunderstorm activity 
from Wednesday on. Thunderstorms are expected to be wet and as is 
typical may produce strong...gusty and erratic winds with the 
stronger thunderstorms. 


Outside of thunderstorms generally light terrain driven winds are 
expected. From Monday Onward a west to southwest flow will gradually 
develop across Arizona. The strongest winds will be across zone 
150...peaking in the 15-20 miles per hour range. This flow will also steadily 
push the moisture out of the region for decreasing chances of 
thunderstorms Wednesday through Friday. 


&& 


Climate...yesterday was the 81st straight day in which the low 
temperature was 70 degrees or warmer. The previous 81 day streak 
occurred in 2013. The official National Weather Service forecast has this record being 
broken on today. Unless the Airport gets hit with a strong 
thunderstorm...this record will likely continue to add days into 
next weekend. 


&& 


Twc watches/warnings/advisories...none.
