GENERALLY FAIR WEATHER AND GRADUALLY WARMING TEMPERATURES ARE
EXPECTED THROUGH MONDAY. A DRY COLD FRONT WILL BRING MUCH COLDER

TUESDAY. MILD TEMPERATURES AND OCCASIONALLY BREEZY CONDITIONS ARE
FORECAST FOR WEDNESDAY THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK.

.DISCUSSION...
WARMING DAYTIME TEMPERATURES AND DRY CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE INTO
EARLY MONDAY. SOME AREAS OF LOW CLOUDS AND PATCHY FOG MAY
REDEVELOP ACROSS NORTHEAST AZ VALLEY AREAS AGAIN TONIGHT.
OTHERWISE...LOOK FOR PERIODS OF MAINLY HIGH CLOUDS IN THE
NORTHWEST FLOW.

OCCASIONAL WEAK IMPULSES WILL BRUSH THE FOUR CORNERS OVER THE
COMING WEEK...INCLUDING MONDAY AFTERNOON...BUT MOST OF THE
NORTHLAND IS FORECAST TO REMAIN DRY OVER THE 7-DAY FORECAST
PERIOD. THIS FIRST IMPULSE WILL ALSO RESULT IN BREEZY WINDS AND
MUCH COOLER TEMPS FOR TUESDAY. THEN...GENERALLY MILD CONDITIONS
WILL PERSIST THROUGH CHRISTMAS AND INTO THE UPCOMING WEEKEND.

FOR THE 00Z PACKAGE...EXPECT A RETURN OF IFR TO VLIFR CONDITIONS
IN LOW CLOUDS AND FOG TO THE LITTLE COLORADO RIVER
VALLEY...INCLUDING KINW...IN THE EARLY EVENING.
HOWEVER...INCREASING WINDS AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT
WILL LIKELY CAUSE CONDITIONS TO IMPROVE EARLIER TOMORROW MORNING
THAN THEY DID TODAY...WITH VFR CONDITIONS ACROSS THE ENTIRE VALLEY
BY AROUND 18Z MONDAY. VFR CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED ELSEWHERE.
