.DISCUSSION...Dry weather across the region through early next week.
Some breeziness is anticipated on Wednesday although speeds will
really increase Thursday and Friday, especially east of Tucson. With
single digit humidities forecast this week, critical thresholds will
likely be realized and Fire Weather Watches have already been
issued. Less wind is forecast Saturday into next week. There will be
some increase in moisture by next Tuesday/Wednesday along with a
slight chance of showers/storms in the White Mountains but wetting
rain seems unlikely.
