Wind Advisory, Red Flag Warning to start work week

TUCSON - Another round of strong wind gusts make their way back to southern Arizona starting tomorrow.

As a low pressure system digs into the region Monday and Tuesday gusty winds will dominate the weather headlines, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. Tucson will see gusts up to 40mph to start the work week with even stronger gusts east of the metro.

Cochise, Graham and Greenlee Counties are under a Wind Advisory from 11am to 8pm on both Monday and Tuesday. Wind gusts will approach 50mph out of the southwest bringing blowing dust and a strong cross wind making for difficult driving conditions.

Add in dry air to the strong winds and there will also be a high fire danger for southern Arizona. A Red Flag Warning is also in effect from 11am to 8pm on both Monday and Tuesday. Any fires that do develop will likely see rapid and sporadic growth, outdoor burning is not recommended.

As things start to calm down on Wednesday and Thursday below average temperatures return to the forecast. Check out our short stretch of daytime highs in the 70s in your True View 4 extended forecast here. For an in depth look at the advisories/warnings check out John Patrick's Weather Blog.
