.DISCUSSION...Expect low humidities, mild daytime temperatures
and breezy conditions Monday, especially in Cochise county where
near critical fire weather conditions will be possible Monday
afternoon.

A low pressure system will then bring cooler temperatures and a
chance of showers late Monday and Tuesday, especially to areas
northeast of Tucson. Farther south in southern fire weather zones
151 and 152, windy conditions and low humidities will result in
brief and localized critical fire weather conditions Tuesday.

Dry and warmer Thursday before the next system provides another
chance of showers and cooler temperatures Friday into next Saturday.
