The coolest temperatures in nearly a month come today at Phoenix Weather

Arizona is facing an unusually cool and windy day as a large area of ​​low pressure remains over the Great Basin.

Valley temperatures will be 10 to 15 degrees below normal this afternoon, with a high in Phoenix of 83 degrees.

The afternoon highs in the mountains range from the upper 50s to nearly 70 degrees.

Wind warnings, warnings of strong winds and warnings of the red flag were issued today for the mountains north and east of the valley.

Gusts of wind will come in from the west-southwest this afternoon and will be strongest, at speeds of 45 to 60 miles per hour.

The risk of fire is particularly high when the air is very dry and there is a severe drought that creates a lot of dry fuels.

In the valley the wind is windy, and today between 12:00 and 18:00 gusts of 32 to 40 km / h are possible.

There’s a slight chance of showers in northeast Arizona today, otherwise you’re looking for sunny skies across the country.

On the way to Sunday, the low pressure system will bounce east and the wind will ease.

Temperatures will remain about 10 degrees below normal, with valley lows in the 1950s and a high in Phoenix of about 88 degrees.

In the mountains, frost is expected in the mornings, with the afternoon highs being between the 60s and the upper 70s.

Temperatures will warm for the next week as the high pressure tries to intensify across the Eastern Pacific.

The valley highs will be in three digits again by Wednesday and possibly as early as Tuesday.

No rain is expected for the next seven days.
