.DISCUSSION...
Thunderstorm chances will continue for the higher elevations
through Saturday but coverage will be far less than the past
several days. Regardless, any location experiencing storms may
expect heavy rain, strong winds, and localized flooding. Minimum
humidity level will remain around a 20-40% range with good to
excellent overnight recovery. Outflow winds will be common around
thunderstorms in the evenings, but otherwise light winds will
prevail.

...Thunderstorms imply gusty winds...

Note...Additional Fire Weather Forecast information can be found
in the Area Forecast Discussion. See product PHXAFDPSR.
