NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Tucson Arizona 
1000 am MST Thursday Jul 24 2014 


Synopsis...hotter temperatures can be anticipated again today. 
Thunderstorms are expected to increase Friday into the 
weekend...especially Saturday afternoon and Saturday night. 


&& 


Discussion...satellite imagery this morning showed a clear sky 
across most of the forecast area. Upper air charts placed 500 mb 
high over NE nm while at 300 and 250 mbs...the high was over east 
central Arizona. Precipitable water values really low for July across Southeast 
Arizona...with values ranging from 0.75" near Arizona/nm border to 1.25" west 
of Tucson. After taking a look at all of the high resolution models 
and operational models...believe that the best areal coverage of 
storms today will be south and west of Tucson. Further south an mesoscale convective system 
that started last night in southern Durango Mexico moved across the 
mouth of the Gulf of California and is dying across southern Baja California. This 
feature may send an outflow up the glfca and push low level moisture 
into the state over the next 24-36 hours. Plenty of moisture 
residing in the Gulf with values between 1.50" and 2" per latest 
blended precipitable water imagery. If we get some of this moisture into the state 
combined with better middle-level temps/flow...could see an upswing in 
thunderstorm activity Friday and Saturday. Saturday could be a big 
day as models are indicating an inverted trough moving in from the 
south. 


&& 


Aviation...clear at this time across Southeast Arizona. Expect middle-level clouds 
to develop after 24/18z...especially S and west of ktus. This area will 
have the best chance for isolated -shra/ts between 24/20z and 25/02z. 
Otherwise...dry conditions are expected to elsewhere. Locally gusty 
winds to 40 kts vicinity -tsra. Aviation discussion not updated for taf 
amendments. 


&& 


Fire weather...drier air has returned for locations east of Tucson 
today where dry conditions are expected to prevail. There will be 
enough moisture mainly to the south and west of Tucson for isolated 
showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. The chance of showers and 
thunderstorms will increase across the entire area into this weekend 
as more widespread moisture moves in. Expect strong...gusty and 
erratic winds with the stronger thunderstorms through the forecast 
period. Temperatures will remain quite hot today with gradual 
cooling Friday and continuing this weekend. 


&& 


Twc watches/warnings/advisories...none.
