Another dry week is expected, with only slight chances of light rain showers in far northern Arizona. An upper-level low pressure system will become entrenched over the Great Basin, directing a strong subtropical jet aloft across Arizona from west to east Tuesday through Thursday. During the afternoon hours, some of this momentum will mix down to the surface of the earth, leading to windy conditions each day, gusting to 35 mph. The wind, combined with dry conditions, will lead to high or extreme wildfire danger, especially north of the Mogollon Rim where winds are stronger and drought conditions are currently worse than in Yavapai County.


Another trough will push through on Thursday evening to Friday morning, bringing an even drier airmass and weak ridging for the weekend. Expect mostly sunny skies, breezes, and near normal temperatures for the coming weekend. Lows in the upper 30s to lower 40s and highs in the lower 70s.
