.DISCUSSION...A weather system passing by to the north of the
area will bring cooler temperatures today and Friday. Dry air and
gusty winds associated with the passing system will result in near
critical fire weather conditions in Cochise county today.
Otherwise, wind speeds will not be strong enough elsewhere to be
of a concern. A brief warmup can be expected on Saturday before
another system passes through the region on Sunday. A stronger
Pacific storm will bring a chance of valley rain and mountain snow
to the area on Monday and Tuesday along with below normal
temperatures.
