TUCSON - The full moon will pass through the Earth's shadow tonight affording us a great opportunity to catch a total lunar eclipse. The eclipse begins around 11 p.m. and will peak just before 1 a.m.
Meanwhile, gusty east winds will develop as high pressure settles into the Great Basin. The strongest winds will be during the overnight and early morning hours of Tuesday.
More wind can be expected by Wednesday as a system brushes to the north. With all the wind and dry conditions, fire danger will be high for much of the week.
High's temperatures most days will remain in the mid to upper 80s under mostly sunny skies.
Another weather maker moves close enough by the weekend bringing at least a slight chance for isolated mountain storms as soon as Saturday.
