TUCSON - Strongest cold front of the fall season so far is knocking on the door.
A system moving in from California will bring big changes to southern Arizona over the next 24 hours, according to Meteorologist John Patrick . The first signs of this storm system are already being felt across the region as the winds begin to pick up.
A Wind Advisory and a Blowing Dust Advisory are both in effect across southern Arizona from noon until 8pm this evening. Expect sustained winds out of the southwest between 25-35mph with gusts possibly above 40mph. This will create blowing dust and difficult driving conditions.
As the front passes tomorrow morning we may a see few showers across southern Arizona, however, the bulk of the moisture is expected to stay to our north. The first snow of the season is also possible with light accumulations for the mountains down to about 8,500ft.
Daytime highs will go from an average 87 this afternoon down to about 74 on Thursday for temps we haven't seen since April. The 70s stick around into Friday before normal temps return late this weekend.
