The Sonoran Wind Machine’s ripping again this afternoon.

A cold front over the Colorado River Valley produces westerly gusts to 30 MPH. Partly cloudy skies prevail today with mountains possibly seeing a few isolated showers. Highs this afternoon reach the mid to upper 60s metrowide, running 7-9° below average.

50 MPH wind gusts are possible south and east of Tucson, where a Wind Advisory is in effect today from 11 AM – 7 PM. Patchy blowing dust may develop near the Willcox Playa on I-10. Southern Graham, southern Greenlee and eastern Cochise County is also under a Red Flag Warning today from 12 – 6 PM. Outdoor burning is not recommended in these areas.

Breezes weaken to 10-15 MPH Wednesday, while a few mountains showers remain possible. Partly cloudy skies remain in place the rest of the work week with highs peaking in the upper 60s to low 70s.

This weekend features a warming trend as high pressure builds over the Pacific coast. Low 80s return Sunday, followed by a run at the low 90s next Monday.
