We have two back-to-back troughs on tap to move through Arizona this week, which will bring some high clouds, breezy and cooler conditions. The first trough is approaching Arizona today, so winds will pick up late this morning and into the afternoon hours, with southwest breezes 15-25 mph. Behind the trough, cooler temperatures will be on tap for tomorrow, with highs in the 50s and lows near or below freezing. The next trough is slated for Thursday afternoon – Friday morning, and will bring another round of mainly high clouds, southwesterly breezes turning to northerly breezes, and further cooling. We may even see some isolated light rain or snow showers on Thursday afternoon – Friday, but accumulations will be light (if any).
Have an enjoyable Thanksgiving and stay warm!
