.DISCUSSION...A weather system passing north of the area will
bring an increase in wind speeds both Monday and Tuesday. This in
combination with low humidities will create isolated areas of brief
critical fire weather conditions. The system will also bring a
slight chance of thunderstorms to the White Mountains Monday
afternoon. Temperatures will remain slightly above normal with
little day to day variation in highs before a warming trend occurs
the second half of the week into the weekend. Beyond Tuesday,
lighter winds with occasional afternoon gusts will prevail.
