Area Forecast Discussion

303 PM MST Fri Dec 9 2016

.SYNOPSIS...Seasonably warm weather will continue through the
weekend with breezy conditions developing on Saturday.
Predominantly dry and mild weather will persist into the middle
of next week.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
Dry westerly flow will be in place for much of the 7-day forecast,
with daytime temperatures running about 5-10 degrees above normal
for most locations. A weak wave moving through the Great Basin may
bring enough moisture to generate some light precipitation near
the Utah border towards the Four Corners from Saturday night into
Sunday. Otherwise, dry conditions to persist until at least Monday
night, and probably further.

Model runs show the potential for a stronger and colder system to
move into the southwest starting Friday of next week, but
confidence remains low at this time. Details on this potential
scenario to become more concrete in the coming days.

&&

.AVIATION...
For the 00Z forecast...Expect VFR conditions through at least 05Z
Saturday. After 05Z Saturday, another round of low cloud may
cause periods of MVFR/IFR ceilings across northwest Coconino
County. This would include KGCN and KFLG, but confidence in this
is low. Otherwise, VFR conditions will prevail. Aviation
discussion not updated for TAF amendments.

&&

.FGZ WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...NONE.
