NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Tucson Arizona 
936 am MST Tuesday Mar 31 2015 


Synopsis...a few showers and thunderstorms may occur mainly near 
the international border southeast of Tucson and across the White 
Mountains this afternoon. Dry conditions with continued above normal 
daytime temperatures will then prevail Wednesday into early next 
week. Expect gusty winds at times into the weekend...and the 
strongest winds should occur Wednesday and Thursday. 


&& 


Discussion...upper low moving south of the area with a few showers 
still possible over the mountains near the international border 
today. Otherwise...dry conditions with some gusty winds this 
afternoon. Current forecast looked on track...so no updates 
necessary this morning. Please refer to the additional sections for 
more details. 


&& 


Aviation...valid through 01/18z. 
There is a slight chance of -tsra/-shra this afternoon mainly near 
the international border south-to-southeast of ktus...and across the 
White Mountains NE of ksad. Brief wind gusts to around 40 kts may 
accompany any -tsra. Kols and kdug will be most prone to these 
gusts...but the expected occurrence is too low to include in the 
tafs. Otherwise...sct-ovc clouds at 10-15k feet above ground level today mainly east 
of ktus with mostly clear skies west of ktus...then clearing skies 
this evening. Expect a few-scattered cirrus clouds late tonight into 
Wednesday morning. Surface wind this afternoon will be westerly/northwesterly 
12-18 kts with gusts of 25-30 kts. Otherwise...surface wind will be 
less than 10 kts. Aviation discussion not updated for taf amendments. 


&& 


Fire weather...there is a slight chance of showers and 
thunderstorms this afternoon mainly near the international border 
adjacent Cochise County and Santa Cruz County...and across the White 
Mountains. Given the very dry surface regime...brief gusty and 
erratic winds may occur near thunderstorms. Dry conditions with 
continued above normal daytime temperatures will then prevail 
Wednesday into early next week. 


Gusty winds will occur mainly during the afternoon and early evening 
hours into this weekend. The strongest winds should prevail 
Wednesday and Thursday. The best occurrence for widespread red 
flag criteria is mainly near the New Mexico border late Thursday 
afternoon and early Thursday evening. Field crews are encouraged to 
monitor subsequent forecasts for the potential issuance of a Fire 
Weather Watch or red flag warning. 


&& 


Previous discussion...weak upper low just south of the Baja California California 
spur early this morning will move eastward into western Chihuahua this 
afternoon. There is enough moisture and instability to maintain a 
slight chance of showers/thunderstorms this afternoon mainly near the 
international border adjacent Santa Cruz/Cochise counties. Another 
impulse presently over northwestern Arizona will move eastward to near The Four 
Corners region this afternoon. This system will also provide a 
slight chance of showers/thunderstorms across the White Mountains this 
afternoon. Any measurable rainfall amounts will be light...with only 
a few hundredths of an inch expected. Dry conditions will then occur 
area-wide this evening followed by clear skies or mostly clear skies 
late tonight. 


Zonal flow aloft will prevail Wed-thur...then generally southwesterly flow 
aloft will occur Friday-Monday in response to a low pressure trough near 
the West Coast. Precipitation-free conditions will occur Wed-Mon...with 
occasional mainly high-level clouds to move across the area. A 
fairly tight middle-level gradient will contribute to seasonally gusty 
winds...especially during the afternoon/early evening hours. The 
strongest winds via various 31/00z nwp guidance should occur Wednesday and 
Thursday. Curious to note that the 31/00z NAM/GFS MOS guidance wind 
speeds are generally stronger Wednesday versus Thursday...although a pronounced 
shortwave trough is prognosticated to move north of the area Thursday. 


A very gradual cooling trend is forecast to occur today-Friday followed 
by modest warming Sat. Slightly cooler high temperatures should prevail by 
next Monday. However...daytime temperatures during much of this forecast 
period will generally average about 5-10 degrees above normal. 


&& 


Twc watches/warnings/advisories...none.
