.DISCUSSION...Expect low humidities, mild daytime temperatures
and breezy conditions today, especially in Cochise county where near
critical fire weather conditions will be possible. A low pressure
system will then bring cooler temperatures and a chance of showers
tonight and Tuesday, especially to Graham and Greenlee County.
Farther south in southern fire weather zones 151 and 152, windy
conditions and low humidities will result in brief and localized
critical fire weather conditions Tuesday. A break between system
Wednesday and Thursday before another weather system moves in by
Friday with more gusty winds along with another chance of showers
and cooler temperatures Friday into next weekend.
