Gusty winds over Arizona today | Phoenix weather

It will be a sunny and breezy day across Arizona when a shortwave trough pulls a cold front through our state.

This system is dehydrated so the only chance of rain / snow tonight is northeast Arizona and even then it is very isolated in nature.

Localized breezes become strong from west to east during the day as the cold front swings through.

For the mountains of central, northern, and eastern Arizona, a wind warning applies from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., with wind gusts of 40 to 55 miles per hour from west to southwest.

Windy conditions prevail in the valley from 2pm to 11pm with gusts of 30 to 40 miles per hour.

Dust is blown over our open deserts.

In terms of temperature, we’ll be about five degrees warmer than average this afternoon, with a forecast high of 77 today in Phoenix.

Behind the cold front, temperatures will drop by five to ten degrees on Sunday.

In the valley on Sunday we see sunshine and a high of 72 with lighter winds.

Temperatures will warm up again Monday and Tuesday, with many valley communities potentially reaching 80 degrees by Tuesday.

The winds will pick up again in the second half of next week as several disruptions pervade the state.

The temperatures also seem to cool down by a few degrees from Wednesday to Friday.

Right now, our coolest high for the next week seems to be Thursday in Phoenix with a high of 72.

No rain is expected in the valley for the next seven days.
