Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southeast Arizona
National Weather Service Tucson AZ
239 PM MST Sun Dec 17 2017

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

.DISCUSSION...Low pressure will bring much higher relative
humidity and scattered precipitation to the area through Monday.
East to Southeast winds this afternoon will give way to relatively
light/diurnally driven winds during through midweek. Once the
current weather system moves to the east, expect dry weather the
remainder of the week. As a weather system approaches Thursday,
expect some increased breezes. The bulk of this system will pass to
our north, thus dry and cool weather to end the work week and into
next weekend.
