.DISCUSSION...Dry in most locations, with just a slight chance of
showers in southern Cochise County this afternoon. A few
thunderstorms may also occur in the White Mountains during the
afternoon Wednesday through Friday. Any lightning would enhance
fire initiation concerns and gusty outflows may also occur.
Otherwise, winds will generally be light and terrain driven
through next week, with the usual afternoon gustiness due to
strong daytime heating.
