TUCSON - A powerful Pacific storm system will bring drastic changes to southern Arizona starting Monday.
The weekend rounds out with another beauty in the mid 80s under sunny skies and a typical afternoon breeze between 10-20mph, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. However, a spring weather system brings the winds of change starting Monday afternoon.
The main concern to start the upcoming work week will be the wind gusts approaching 50mph creating blowing dust, difficult driving conditions and a high wildfire danger. There is already a Fire Weather Watch in place for southern Arizona starting Monday afternoon.
There will be enough moisture associated with system to bring a few isolated showers and thunderstorms to the region. The best chance to see any precipitation remains in the higher elevations to the north and east of Tucson starting Monday afternoon into the evening hours.
A big temperature swing is also in the forecast with the low to mid 70s returning both Tuesday and Wednesday. To check out your True View 4 extended forecast click here. For a more in depth look at the upcoming changes be sure to check out John Patrick's Weather Blog.
