TUCSON - First comes the warmth, then comes the winds.
High pressure over eastern New Mexico skyrockets the temps to the mid 90's today, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. While winds will be in the 10-15 MPH range today, we'll see them increase over the weekend. This is thanks to a tightening pressure gradient as an area of low pressure drops down the west coast.
Over the weekend, expect gusty winds up to 20 MPH and high temperatures in the low 90's.
That low pressure system then stalls out over Baja California next week. A southwesterly flow aloft taps in to some tropical moisture, which may lead to a few dry thunderstorms in the southern Arizona mountains starting Tuesday. Temperatures next week cool down slightly under those mountain cloud build-ups, with upper 80's for highs.
