Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Tucson AZ
248 AM MST Sun Oct 22 2017

.SYNOPSIS...Dry conditions to prevail during the upcoming week.
Warmer daytime temperatures returning today into Monday, with record
or near record high temperatures Monday into Wednesday. Expect a
cooling trend next Friday and Saturday, although above normal
temperatures will likely continue.

&&

.DISCUSSION...A ridge of high pressure will build over the region
today into Wednesday. This feature will provide the area with dry
conditions and a rapid warm up today into Wednesday. Projected high
temperatures will be near or at record breaking levels Monday
through Wednesday. Thereafter, models showed a trough of low
pressure deepening over the central United States. This will result
in lower height and thickness values, translating to cooler and more
seasonable daytime temperature readings.

&&

.AVIATION...Valid thru 23/12Z.
Clear skies through the forecast period. SFC wind generally NELY
through SELY and less than 12 kts into Monday morning. Aviation
discussion not updated for TAF amendments.

&&

.FIRE WEATHER...Dry conditions will continue into next Saturday. A
generally light easterly wind component will prevail through Monday.
Breezy east to southeast 20-foot winds are expected Tuesday into
Wednesday, with gusty west to northwest winds occurring Thursday and
Friday, especially east of Tucson.

&&

.TWC WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...None.
