Arizona and Southeast California

.DISCUSSION...
Breezy conditions will last through early this evening across the
Desert Southwest before gradually tapering off. The strongest
winds are expected across the higher elevations of southeastern
California and southwestern Arizona with gusts up to 30 mph.
Humidities around 15 percent across southeastern California and
southwestern Arizona will gradually climb overnight becoming
greater than 20 percent after midnight.The combination of
decreasing wind and increasing RH will reduce fire danger across
the area. Dry northwest flow is expected tomorrow along with above
normal high temperatures and locally breezy northwest winds mainly
during the afternoon.

...Thunderstorms imply gusty winds...
