.SYNOPSIS...Expect dry weather conditions with near average
temperatures through Monday. A strong cold front is forecast to
bring much colder temperatures and perhaps some shower activity
late Tuesday into Wednesday.


Daytime temps will warm a bit more today. Locally gusty northeast
winds, mainly near and just southwest of higher terrain features
like the Mogollon Rim and San Francisco Peaks, will continue
through the morning but weaken during the day.

By Tuesday, low pressure from the Pacific Northwest will push
southward approaching northern Arizona. Much of the moisture looks
to remain just north of the state, but slight chances for precip
may return for Tuesday night and Wednesday. In addition, this
will lead to strong and gusty winds for Tuesday, then cooler temps
by Wednesday. Dry conditions with gradually climbing daytime
temperatures are then expected for the remainder of the week.


.AVIATION...For the 12Z forecast...A dry northerly flow aloft will
produce VFR conditions across northern Arizona for the next 24
hours. Until 18z...look for gusty N-NE winds of 15-35 kts along
and south of the Mogollon Rim...diminishing during the afternoon.
Light winds elsewhere. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF
