.DISCUSSION...
Light winds and clear skies are forecast for today as Saturday`s
weather system departs to our east.  Highs will still be below
average on Sunday and Monday but a warming trend will follow later
in the week.  Dry air will push into our forecast area today and
will bring minimum humidities down into the teens and twenties for
most locations. However, cold overnight temperatures will make for
good overnight recoveries.

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