    Updated 1730Z.
    South-Central Arizona including KPHX, KIWA, KSDL, and KDVT:
    Light winds will gradually veer to the south through mid-
    afternoon and then should maintain a more persistent southwest
    direction by late afternoon. Wind speeds will remain mainly aob 8
    kts. Chances for showers and thunderstorms in the Phoenix area
    today will remain low (< 10%), and mainly between 21Z and 4Z
    tonight. Most of the activity is expected to remain over the high
    terrain north and east of terminals. Could see outflows from
    distant thunderstorms make their into the Valley this evening. But
    appears this would only cause an earlier wind shift to the east
    if comes to fruition. The chance of having wind speeds greater
    than 35 mph with any storm or outflow is less than 10% today and
    tonight. Tomorrow continues to look more active, but mainly
    outside of this TAF package. Otherwise, FEW-SCT clouds will
    persist, mainly aoa 10 kft.
    Southeast California/Southwest Arizona including KIPL and KBLH:
    Winds at KIPL will generally favor the SE, while winds at KBLH
    favor the S. Expect wind speeds to remain light, mostly aob 8 kts.
    An isolated storm can't be ruled at KBLH between 20Z and 00z this
    afternoon (5% chance), but due to the low chances, not included
    in this TAF package. There is about a 10% chance that any storm or
    outflow that develops near KBLH would produce winds greater than
    35 mph. Otherwise, mostly clear skies with a few passing clouds
    mainly aoa 10 kft.
