    South-Central Arizona including KPHX, KIWA, KSDL, and KDVT:
    Some variability in wind direction will occur overnight, but in
    general, N/NW winds will gradually veer to the typical easterly as
    abundant mid/high clouds prevail from the leftovers of earlier
    storms. Chances for any additional storms overnight through Saturday
    early afternoon is less than 10%. Confidence is moderately good that
    thunderstorms will remain well removed from terminal locations
    Saturday afternoon and evening (direct TS impact 20% or less) with
    somewhat better chances of a muted, distant outflow bringing an E/SE
    wind shift later Saturday evening.
    Southeast California/Southwest Arizona including KIPL and KBLH:
    With periodic mid/high clouds streaming through the region from
    decaying storms, S/SE winds will be preferred into Saturday
    afternoon. Some occasional gustiness from distant outflows will be
    possible. Chances for storms and impacts to aviation will begin to
    increase markedly Saturday afternoon, particularly at KIPL where
    direct TS impact chances increase around 30%. Even higher
    probabilities exist that erratic gusty winds affect either terminal
