.SYNOPSIS...Expect dry weather with near average temperatures
through this afternoon. A cold front will move into Arizona from
the north with a few light showers possible by tonight and
Wednesday. Cold air behind the front will linger for a few days
with colder temperatures in the forecast. A warming trend returns
starting on Thursday.


Breezy conditions will continue as a cold front pushes across the
area. Some areas might see some light showers of snow, but no
significant accumlations are expected. Winds will remain gusty
through the early morning hours across much of the area with the
gradient beginning to weaken near dawn. Wind speeds should drop
down at most locations by sunrise. Temperatures will be cool for
wednesday and thursday with a gradual warm up through the rest of
the week. Another glancing blow from the next weather system could
bring some chance for precipitation by this weekend but confidence
of any measurable precipitation is low at this point.


.AVIATION...For the 00Z forecast...Expect VFR conditions and
southwest winds of 15 to 20 kts gusting to 30 kts through 03z. From
03z to 15z, expect breezy southwest winds, with localized areas of
MVFR/IFR conditions in low clouds for higher terrain locations along
and south of the Mogollon Rim. VFR conditions and light winds are
forecast after 15Z. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF
