The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning for much of Southern Arizona. This is in effect from 2 PM until 8 PM.

Outdoor burning is not recommended today, including Metro Tucson.

In addition, a Wind Advisory is in effect from 11 AM until 8 PM for Metro Tucson & points east. West winds could gust as high as 40-50 MPH through this evening. Eastern Cochise County is under a Blowing Dust Advisory for the same timeframe. Reduced visibility is possible from the Willcox Playa to New Mexico state line.

Gusty winds decrease tomorrow, as a storm system passes east of the state. Models hint at a new storm system by Thursday, bringing back the breezes through the first half of the weekend. Daytime highs Saturday drop to the upper 70s, which could stand as the coolest day in Tucson until Autumn.
