Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southwest and South-Central
Arizona and Southeast California
National Weather Service Phoenix AZ
317 AM MST Mon Dec 18 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Clouds this morning over Gila County will continue to gradually
clear as a weather system continues to push off to our east. While
precipitation is not likely, a light shower is possible early
this morning across eastern portions of Gila County. Winds will be
relatively light across the forecast area today and Tuesday as a
transient ridge builds over our area. Temperatures will remain
near seasonal normal while dry conditions continue across SE
California. Higher dew points and humidities will remain across
south-central AZ as moisture is slow to exit the area.

Note...Additional Fire Weather Forecast information can be found
in the Area Forecast Discussion. See product PHXAFDPSR.
