Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Flagstaff AZ
620 PM MST Wed Dec 07 2016

.SYNOPSIS...Expect dry conditions with above normal daytime
temperatures and cool nights for the next several days.

&&

.DISCUSSION...Quiet weather is expected to continue through the bulk
of the forecast with no significant preciptation expected at this
time. This quiet weather is due to the zonal flow that will continue
over the area as the low pressure systems moving onshore from the
Pacific remain well north of the area. Some breezy conditions will
develop, with the winds generally increasing through the daytime
hours and decreasing again as convective mixing shuts off near
sunset. There is some potential for some precipitation towards the
ends of the forecast period as a weak shortwave trough is forecast
by some of the model suites to possibly impact the area. Confidence
in this scenario coming to fruition remains low, due to lack of
model consensus and extreme distance into the future.

Temperatures are expected to climb through the rest of the week,
with high climbing back to seasonal values by this weekend before a
brief drop of a few degrees as the next system passes far to the
north.

&&

.AVIATION...For the 00Z forecast...Expect VFR conditions over the
next 24 hours. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.

.FGZ WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...NONE.
