Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southwest and South-Central
Arizona and Southeast California
National Weather Service Phoenix AZ
212 PM MST Thu May 25 2017

.DISCUSSION...

An exceptionally dry air mass across the Desert Southwest is
resulting in single digit RHs this afternoon. The dry air combined
with wind gusts approaching 30 to 35 mph in spots will result in
a few hours of critical fire weather conditions, particularly
across portions of southeastern California and the higher terrain
of eastern Gila County.

Conditions will improve somewhat Friday as temperatures cool, RHs
increase and winds subside. However, minimum RHs below 15 percent
will persist across much of the area. Temperatures will remain
below average Saturday as an area of low pressure lingers near the
Four Corners.

...Thunderstorms imply gusty winds...

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