ROTATE AROUND ITS BACKSIDE AND GIVE THE GILA WILDERNESS A SLIGHT
RISK OF SHOWERS AND A THUNDERSTORM THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY
EVENING. TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN AROUND 10 DEGREES COOLER THAN
NORMAL FOR ONE MORE DAY. HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT FOLLOWED BY WESTERLY
WINDS WILL BRING MUCH WARMER AND MOSTLY DRY WEATHER TO THE AREA
WEDNESDAY AND REMAIN INTO THE FIRST PART OF WEEKEND BEFORE ANOTHER
SYSTEM FROM THE WEST BRINGS A THREAT OF WIND AND SHOWERS TO THE
FIRE ZONES LATER IN THE WEEKEND AND THE FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK.
