Chance of Showers This Week

01 November 2016   Dr. Curtis James

Could see some showers later this week.

The figure above indicates the forecasted high in orange (with error bar denoting the range of ensemble forecast members), average high for this time of year in orange (dashed line), forecasted low in blue (with error bar), average low this time of year in blue (dashed line), and forecasted wind speed in purple. Note that the wind speed forecast is sustained wind (not gusts), and it is based on only one model (not an ensemble).

Weather Discussion:

An upper-level trough will move across Arizona from northwest to southeast tomorrow then cut off from the jet stream and retrograde slowly back over central Arizona on Wednesday and Thursday. As a result expect variable cloudiness and breezes the next few days, with a chance of showers or thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon – Friday evening.

Temperatures will remain generally above normal for at least the next week.
