...DISCUSSION FROM RNOFWFVEF...

A TROUGH WILL CONTINUE TO BRING BREEZY AFTERNOONS TO THE REGION INTO
THE WEEKEND. WESTERN AREAS WILL REMAIN DRY, BUT MONSOON MOISTURE
WILL CONTINUE TO SLOWLY INCREASE ACROSS NORTHWESTERN ARIZONA AND
EXTREME SOUTHEASTERN NEVADA, LEADING TO THUNDERSTORM CHANCES THROUGH
FRIDAY. WINDS LOOK TO GENERALLY STAY BELOW ANY CRITERIA BUT WILL
BEAR WATCHING FOR LATER IN THE WEEK AND WEEKEND.


...DISCUSSION FROM LAXFWFSGX...


AN UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH DIGGING OVER THE REGION WILL CREATE BREEZY
SOUTHWEST TO WEST WINDS THROUGH MOUNTAIN PASSES AND ALONG DESERT
MOUNTAIN SLOPES IN THE AFTERNOONS THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
THIS...COMBINED WITH LOW MIN RH NEAR 10 PERCENT...WILL CREATE
ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS OVER PORTIONS OF THE MOUNTAINS AND
DESERTS THROUGH THE PERIOD. A DEEP MARINE LAYER WILL KEEP RH HIGHER
ALONG THE COAST AND OVER THE VALLEYS.


...DISCUSSION FROM PHXFWFPSR...


ANTICIPATE GUSTY WINDS THIS EVENING OVER SOUTH-CENTRAL
ARIZONA...EMANATING FROM THUNDERSTORMS OVER SOUTHEAST ARIZONA.
OVERNIGHT...LINGERING CLOUDINESS AND ISOLATED LIGHT SHOWERS WILL BE
POSSIBLE. THERE WILL BE A SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS ON THE
LOWER DESERTS OF SOUTH-CENTRAL ARIZONA THURSDAY WITH BETTER CHANCES
HIGHER TERRAIN. STORM ACTIVITY FRIDAY WILL BE CONFINED TO THE HIGHER
TERRAIN OF SOUTH-CENTRAL ARIZONA. MINIMUM HUMIDITIES TREND UP
THURSDAY THEN START TRENDING DOWN FRIDAY. OVERNIGHT RECOVERY REMAINS
GOOD.
