Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southeast Arizona
National Weather Service Tucson AZ
231 PM MST Tue Apr 24 2018

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

.DISCUSSION...Quiet until an approaching weather system brings a
slight chance of thunderstorms over the White Mountains on
Thursday in the late afternoon/evening. Storms become more
expansive on Friday through Saturday as isolated to scattered
storms develop from Tucson eastward. The primary concern will be
dry thunderstorms capable of starting fires and producing strong
outflow winds, especially in the higher terrain where development
is more likely. Dry weather returns for Sunday and beyond, but
20-ft winds reach 15-25 mph each afternoon through Tuesday.
