SYNOPSIS FROM THE PHOENIX OFFICE
A low pressure system that was located along the south central Arizona border on Thursday, will track northeastward across the state today. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are forecast across most of eastern Arizona through this evening. Clearing skies are forecast later tonight, with mostly clear skies and warmer temperatures expected this weekend through the end of next week
The cutoff low will continue to move northeastward today, with the 500 mb low center near Payson around noon, then near Show low this evening. Most upper level support for showers and thunderstorms today will be confined to mountains northeast through east of Phoenix, with most precip in our forecast area focused over southern Gila County. However, the upper lows cyclonic circulation, as it pulls away from the deserts near Phoenix, will likely circulate cloudiness and dissipating mountains showers, i.e. convective debris cloudiness, back into portions of the greater Phoenix area from the north and northeast. Although precip probabilities will remain elevated for southern Gila County, lower probabilities will remain over the northern and eastern portions of the greater Phoenix area closest to the mountains. Otherwise the remainder of the forecast area, including southeast CA and southwest AZ, will be partly cloudy and dry. Additionally, showers drifting off the mountains north through northeast of Phoenix could create some gustiness at times this afternoon and evening, i.e. sudden wind gusts to 30 mph
