Temperatures stayed elevated last night as the moisture from the south made it to Northern Arizona. Dewpoints have been boosted to the low 30′s. This should help with the Schultz Fire. But, the National Weather service is forecasting only isolated, dry thunderstorms…with lightning.
But, I am starting to wonder as I look at this mornings sky, and the precipitable water and dewpoint maps from NWS-Tucson. Both would point to a decent chance of rain today. It’s all about timing. The southwest winds are expected to kick in again today. As you can see, there is another band of dry air to the southwest, waiting to move into area.
This weekend should be warm and dry. The next moisture plume looks to arrive mid to late next week.
