evening for portions of Fire Weather Zones 151 and 152, mainly south-
to-east of Tucson. The combination of strong and gusty winds, low
relative humidity values and a very high fire danger will continue
to create critical fire weather conditions through the early evening
hours tonight.

Less wind will prevail this weekend and next week. An increase in
moisture will result in a slight chance of afternoon and evening
showers and thunderstorms mainly east of Tucson Monday through next
Friday. Expect erratic and gusty outflow winds with thunderstorms
that do develop.
