.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Excessive heat is expected to continue today with lowland

afternoon over the mountainous terrain, particularly across the
Gila Wilderness. These storms will not be severe.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Continued heat is expected across the desert lowlands each day,
with high temperatures ranging from 100 to 110 degrees. A daily
chance of showers and thunderstorms is expected with the focus
being over area mountains. Rain chances may reach the lowlands by
next Tuesday. Brief heavy rain and gusty outflow winds will be
the primary threats.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
