TUCSON - Feeling like a hair dryer out there this afternoon.
Bringing the 16th day of triple digit temps this year is an area of high pressure south of the border, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Highs today through the weekend peak in the 100-104 range. A cold front approaching from the Pacific Northwest will be responsible for the gusty winds today, with gusts reaching 25 MPH out of the southwest.
Winds increase the wildfire danger tomorrow as the front passes north of the state. A Fire Weather Watch has been issued for Cochise, Graham and Greenlee Counties from Saturday morning until Saturday evening. Outdoor burning is not recommended in these areas, as any wildfire that develops has the potential for rapid & uncontrolled growth.
Winds and triple digit temps take a temporary break Monday, with the 100's back in the forecast starting Tuesday of next week. Expect plenty of sunshine the next 7 days, with overnight lows in the 60's and 70's.
