Arizona and Southeast California
National Weather Service Phoenix AZ
136 PM MST Sat May 26 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Winds will favor the west and be elevated across the districts
this afternoon. Gusts around 20 to 30 mph will be common with
some localized stronger winds, particularly across southeastern
California. By Sunday, wind speeds will abate to more typical
late May levels. Temperatures will be slightly cooler with highs a
few degrees below normal. Despite the cooler temperatures,
afternoon humidity levels will still fall into the 10 to 15
percent range following poor to fair overnight recovery. A warming
and drying trend is likely early next week as high pressure
builds across the Desert Southwest.

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