.SYNOPSIS...Expect dry and seasonably warm conditions well into
early next week. Breezy conditons will develop each afternoon.


.DISCUSSION...Dry west-southwest flow aloft and slightly above
normal hghts will continue well into next week. Occasional s/wvs
passing to our north will bring breezy to windy afternoons to the
area, but nothing that warrants any headlines. Above normal daytime
temperatures will drop back to around normal later next week as a
stronger system passes through the Great Basin.


.AVIATION...For the 12Z Package...Expect VFR conditions for the 24
hour period, with increasing cirrus cloud cover through the day.
Southwest winds 10-20kts from 17Z-01Z, otherwise, variable up to 10
kts. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.


FIRE WEATHER...Southwest flow aloft will bring a pattern of
persistence to northern Arizona from today through at least
Wednesday. Expect warm and dry conditions with gusty afternoon
southwesterly winds.

This afternoons Haines index is 6 for areas east of Page-Cameron-
Show Low line, and a 5 elsewhere.
