.SYNOPSIS...Isolated showers will linger over the White Mountains
early this morning. Otherwise, expect dry weather conditions with
a warming trend through the weekend. A strong cold front may bring
much colder temperatures and showers as early as Tuesday


A few lingering showers may continue early this morning across the
White Mountains as low pressure across northwestern Mexico moves
south and east away from Arizona. Daytime temps will warm a bit
this weekend, but will be couple with locally gusty northeast
winds, especially near and southwest of higher terrain features
like the Mogollon Rim and San Francisco Peaks. The strongest of
these winds are expected early Sunday morning.

By Tuesday of next week, low pressure from the Pacific Northwest
will push southward approaching northern Arizona. Much of the
moisture looks to remain just north of the state, but we`re
currently looking at slight chances for precip returning for
Tuesday and Wednesday. In addition, this will lead to strong and
gusty winds for Tuesday, then cooler temps by Wednesday. Dry
conditions with gradually climbing daytime temperatures are then
expected for the remainder of the week.


.AVIATION...For the 12Z forecast...Mainly VFR conditions across
northern Arizona for the next 24 hours. Locally gusty N-NE winds
of 15-35 kts along and south of the Mogollon Rim. Aviation
discussion not updated for TAF amendments.
