Very warm temperatures will persist Friday and Saturday with a
marginal increase in moisture. The higher terrain of Gila County
has a very slight risk for an afternoon and evening thunderstorm
though rainfall is unlikely. Otherwise, minimum relative humidity
values will remain in a 10-15 percent range with fair overnight
recovery. Some breezy southeast winds may affect the eastern
districts Friday morning, then again Saturday afternoon across all
districts.

...Thunderstorms imply gusty winds...
