FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SOUTHWEST AND SOUTH-CENTRAL
ARIZONA AND SOUTHEAST CALIFORNIA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PHOENIX AZ
311 AM MST FRI JUL 25 2014

.DISCUSSION...
VERY WARM...BUT SOMEWHAT COOLER...TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED
TODAY...AS UPPER LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE BEGINS WEAKENING AND SHIFTING
FURTHER TO THE EAST. INCREASING MOISTURE WILL MEAN A GREATER LIKELIHOOD
OF AFTERNOON AND EVENING THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS THE REGION. THE BIGGEST
THREAT WILL BE IN THE MOUNTAINS EAST OF PHOENIX. WINDS WILL BE
GENERALLY OUT OF THE SOUTHWEST AND LESS THAN 10 MPH...BUT WILL BECOME
VARIABLE AND GUSTY AS OUTFLOW BOUNDARIES FROM STORMS MOVE ACROSS THE
AREA. MINIMUM HUMIDITY LEVELS WILL RANGE FROM THE UPPER TEENS TO
AROUND 25 PERCENT. GOOD OVERNIGHT RECOVERY IS EXPECTED.

...THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY GUSTY WINDS...

NOTE...ADDITIONAL FIRE WEATHER FORECAST INFORMATION CAN BE FOUND
IN THE AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION. SEE PRODUCT PHXAFDPSR.
