.SYNOPSIS...Daytime temperatures will warm through Friday. A few
dry cold fronts will push across the Northland over the coming
week, with the main impact being occasionally gusty northeast
winds.

&&

.UPDATE...A weather disturbance will pass through the Four Corners
tonight keeping northerly winds aloft elevated across northern
Arizona. This will continue to bring elevated wind speeds to the
highest areas of the San Francisco Peaks through Thursday
morning, and we have updated the forecast to account for this.
Elsewhere, calm winds with mostly clear skies will prevail.

&&

.PREV DISCUSSION /252 PM MST/... Dry and occasionally gusty
conditions with seasonable daytime temperatures are expected

across the area looks to occur Friday night into Saturday
morning. Widespread gusty northeast winds are expected with this
passage.

northern Arizona for the next 24 hrs. Light and variable overnight
