Mid level ridging will start to build into the central CONUS today
with a series of troughs moving through the Northwest and northern
Plains. At this time, dry fuels are concentrated across portions of
the Southwest and southern High Plains. However, winds will be
mostly light across this region on Saturday. Some dry and breezy (15
to 20 mph) conditions are possible across southern Arizona as
mid-level flow strengthens, but fuels are not dry enough to support
large fires at this time.
