Areas affected...southern Arizona
Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely
Valid 092002Z - 092230Z
Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent
SUMMARY...Storms will pose a risk for isolated downburst winds over
southern AZ through early evening. Coverage of severe events is
expected to remain too sparse for a WW issuance.
DISCUSSION...Modest easterly deep-layer winds between 2-10 km within
southern periphery of upper ridge will promote westward movement of
storms developing over the higher terrain of southeast AZ.
Temperatures climbing through 100 F and dewpoints in the 50s F are
promoting moderate instability with 1500-2000 J/kg MLCAPE and steep
lapse rates with inverted-v boundary layers. Isolated downburst
winds will likely occur through early evening as this activity
develops westward through the corridor of stronger instability.
