Arizona and Southeast California
National Weather Service Phoenix AZ

.DISCUSSION...

A series of weak fast moving Pacific weather disturbances will
move into the western states the next few days. This will produce
gusty afternoon/early evening west to southwest winds across the
region Today and Wednesday. The combination of gusty winds and
low humidity will raise fire danger levels to near-critical
thresholds, especially across SE CA.

in the Area Forecast Discussion. See product PHXAFDPSR.
