Service Phoenix AZ
520 AM MST Wed Mar 29 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Dry northwest flow is expected today along with above normal high
temperatures and locally breezy northwest winds mainly during the
late morning and early afternoon. Relative humidity will lower to
around 10% in the deserts this afternoon but should recover to
35-45% tonight. Another dry low pressure system moves in late
Thursday which will bring gusty winds combined with low relative
humidity. This will likely cause a few hours of hazardous fire
weather conditons mainly in SE California and far western
portions of Arizona tomorrow afternoon

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