Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southeast Arizona
National Weather Service Tucson AZ
228 PM MST Wed Apr 25 2018

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    20-FOOT WIND FORECAST OF `LIGHT WINDS` INDICATES MAINLY
    TERRAIN DRIVEN WINDS
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

.DISCUSSION...Light winds and dry conditions into early Thursday,
then increased moisture from the east brings a slight chance of
mainly dry thunderstorms over the White Mountains Thursday
afternoon and evening. Sufficient moisture for isolated to
scattered mainly dry afternoon and evening thunderstorms from
Tucson eastward Friday into Saturday.

The main concern Friday into Saturday are dry thunderstorms
capable of starting fires and producing strong outflow winds,
especially in the higher terrain where development is more likely.
Dry conditions will then prevail Sunday into Tuesday.
