Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Flagstaff AZ
350 PM MST THU AUG 25 2016

.SYNOPSIS...Expect scattered thunderstorms each day through
Saturday, along with cooler than normal daytime temperatures. A
drying and warming trend is expected late in the weekend and into
early next week.

&&

.DISCUSSION...Active day across northern Arizona with scattered
showers and thunderstorms with a few storms producing heavy rain and
hail. Local minor flooding was reported as well. Storms will slowly
dissipate tonight...some storms may continue through the night
across areas north and east of the Mogollon Rim as a trough moving
Utah and into Colorado will continue to provide lift.

Chance of mainly afternoon and evening thunderstorms continues
Friday and Saturday, then a decrease in moisture and warmer
temperatures is expected Sunday through Tuesday as high pressure
builds over the region. A few isolated storms are still possible,
mainly for higher terrain areas in eastern AZ. The flow could become
more favorable for increasing moisture and storms again by mid week.
&&

.AVIATION...For the 00z package...Scattered showers and
thunderstorms, primarily along and north of a line extending through
Prescott and Payson until 02z...becoming isolated overnight. General

scattered ceilings 7000 feet above ground level. Look for another
round of storms on Friday. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF
amendments.
