today with RH to rise a few percent on Thursday. High temperatures
will stay slightly above normal each day with warmer deserts
climbing into the low to middle 90s. Expect breezy conditions
during the afternoon and early evening each day, favoring the
west, with highest gusts typically over south-central Arizona.
