50 mph winds possible near Monument Fire Sunday

TUCSON - The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory for Cochise, Graham & Greenlee Counties. This will be in effect Sunday from 12 PM until 7 PM.

A Red Flag Warning will also be in effect Sunday, from 10 AM until 8 PM for all of southern Arizona.

News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish predicts west-southwest winds up to 50 MPH Sunday near the Monument Fire. Gusty winds combined with low relative humidity & dry fuels will lead to an extreme fire danger.

For that reason, Sunday's Wildfire Index has been set at its highest level, which is a 10.
