TUCSON – The Sonoran Wind Machine is set to crank up.
A pair of moisture-starved storm systems advance toward Arizona. The first system increases easterly winds up to 25 MPH, starting late this morning & continuing through lunchtime Saturday.
Highs to wrap the week reach the mid to upper 70s, which is typical for this time of year.
Sunday features a break from the breezes, before a second storm system grazes eastern Arizona. Gusty winds are on tap beginning Monday and continuing through Wednesday.
This cold front not only cranks up the winds, but drops temperatures next week. Highs Monday and Tuesday struggle to reach the upper 60s, while overnight lows bottom out in the upper 30s to low 40s for Metro Tucson.
Portions of Santa Cruz and Cochise County likely wake up to freezing temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday.
