Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southeast Arizona
National Weather Service Tucson AZ
354 AM MST Thu Dec 14 2017

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    20-FOOT WIND FORECAST OF `LIGHT WINDS` INDICATES MAINLY
    TERRAIN DRIVEN WINDS
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

.DISCUSSION...Except for a possible shower in the far
southeast corner of the state this afternoon as a weak trough passes
by, expect dry conditions through Saturday. Winds ahead of the
trough will increase out of the northeast-southeast late this
evening into Friday morning in eastern locations and along most
ridgetops. Another system will pass through Sunday into Monday
bringing with it near- or below-normal temperatures, increased
wind speeds, and the potential for a more widespread chance of
precipitation. Drier air and warmer temperatures will then return
through the remainder of the forecast period.
