An upper-level low moving through the great Basin today to tomorrow has tightened the pressure contrast across northern Arizona, leading to windy conditions this afternoon, with southwesterly wind 20-30 mph, gusting to near 40 mph. By tomorrow into Wednesday morning, we will see about 5-10 degrees of cooling behind the trough, but winds will die down somewhat. The windy conditions today over the dry vegetation in portions of Arizona is a bad recipe for wildfires!
For the remainder of the week, a broad low-amplitude ridge will prevail over the Southwestern U.S., bringing mostly sunny skies except periods of high clouds as the ridge flattens late in the week and over the weekend. We will see some afternoon southwesterly breezes 10-20 mph each day, otherwise the weather will be nice. It will be great kite-flying weather each afternoon from Tuesday onward, but no precipitation expected this week.
