|Where's Wayne-O? Why at Iguazu Falls, Of course!|
|Here's the QPF for the next 72 hours. The 7-day QPF looks much the same so |
we're guessing whatever precip happens will happen during the next three days.
Below is the meat of this morning's Area Forecast Discussion from the Flagstaff NWS.
.DISCUSSION...THE RIDGE IS ON THE WAY OUT TODAY AS AN ACTIVE SOUTHERN STREAM IMPINGES THE WEST COAST. THIS WILL COMBINE WITH A FRACTURING AND RETROGRADING HUDSON BAY VORTEX TO ALLOW MORE ACTIVE CONDITIONS OVER THE SOUTHWEST FOR SEVERAL DAYS. THE FIRST WAVE TO AFFECT OUR AREA IS SEEN CROSSING THROUGH 130W THIS MORNING WITH A DECENT MOISTURE FETCH JUST TO THE SOUTH. PRESSURE FALLS WITH THIS WAVE WILL BRING WINDY CONDITIONS TO THE REGION TODAY AND AN ADVISORY IS ALREADY OUT. THE MOISTURE STREAM MENTIONED ABOVE WILL ARRIVE LATER TODAY...WITH DYNAMICS AND A COLD FRONT ASSOCIATED WITH THE FIRST WAVE ARRIVING FRIDAY. THE SYSTEM WILL LOSE SOME OF ITS STRUCTURE BY FRIDAY AND THE MOISTURE WILL LARGELY BE ROBBED BY THE SIERRAS...BUT ENOUGH WILL REMAIN TO BRING A DECENT AREA OF RAIN AND SNOW SHOWERS TO NORTHERN AND CENTRAL ARIZONA ON FRIDAY. THIS SYSTEM WILL EXIT ARIZONA FRIDAY NIGHT WITH ANOTHER TRAILING SYSTEM DUE SATURDAY AFTERNOON. NOT MUCH IN THE WAY OF FORCING WITH THIS SECOND SYSTEM...BUT A COLDER AND MORE UNSTABLE AIRMASS WILL PAVE THE WAY FOR MORE SHOWER ACTIVITY. A THIRD SYSTEM ARRIVES LATE SUNDAY AND INTO MONDAY. THE TRACK FOR THIS THIRD SYSTEM IS STILL UNCERTAIN...BUT COOL AND UNSETTLED CONDITIONS WILL LIKELY PERSIST.
