This week will be great kite-flying weather!

A large-scale ridge will build over the Southwest this week, bringing warm temperatures and mostly sunny skies. However, a weak trough of low pressure moving around the trough and through the Southwest today through Wednesday will create pressure differences across the area and breezy to windy conditions each day, especially in the in the afternoon hours. Wind will weaken by Friday and Saturday, and temperatures will climb slightly higher as the ridge axis swings across the area.

By Sunday, another trough could approach Arizona, for another round of breezes and slight cooling, with high clouds.
