National Weather Service Tucson AZ
250 AM MST Sun Apr 30 2017

.SYNOPSIS...High pressure will bring dry conditions and a strong
warming trend during the upcoming week.

&&

.DISCUSSION...The forecast calls for warmer high temperatures the
next several days as a ridge of high pressure aloft builds over the
Desert Southwest. This will result in plenty of sunshine and dry
conditions with less wind as compared to last week. Latest model
solutions showed daytime temperatures peaking around Friday, with
Tucson approaching the 100 degree mark by the end of the week.

&&

.AVIATION...Valid through 01/12Z.
Periods of thin cirrus level clouds otrw CLR. Vrbl SFC wind less
than 10 kts thru 30/17z then bcmg WLY/NWLY 10-18 kts with gusts up
to 25 kts. SFC wind diminishing to less than 10 kts after 01/03z.
Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.

&&

.FIRE WEATHER...Dry conditions will prevail into next Saturday.
Expect markedly less wind as well through Wednesday, although
afternoon gusts will occur due to daytime heating. A somewhat tight
surface pressure gradient Thursday into Friday should produce
elevated east to southeast winds. Daytime minimum relative humidity
will be in the single digits at lower elevations and the teens in
the mountains.
