south- to-southeast of Tucson. The combination of strong and gusty
winds, low relative humidity values and a very high fire danger will

in moisture will result in a slight chance of mainly afternoon and
evening thunderstorms near higher terrain Memorial Day into next
Wednesday. Dry lightning will be possible with any storms along with
gusty and erratic winds.
