PHOENIX (AP) - National Weather Service forecasters say the odds favor the coming winter in Arizona being drier and warmer than normal.

A long-range outlook produced by NWS offices serving Arizona said the state will enter the winter after experiencing levels of precipitation that were mostly well below normal. That dryness has left much of Arizona being classified as being in extreme drought, with desert areas including Phoenix and Tucson worse off in exceptional drought status.

The expected winter weather conditions point toward less grass growth in lower elevations, reducing the prevalence of wildfires in those areas, the forecasters said.
