TUCSON - After a windy Sunday in Southern Arizona, we are once again seeing a Red Flag or a Fire Weather Warning being issued for Southern Arizona. Wind gusts could exceed 40 mph.
- Monday: Windy, Sunny, Warm. High: 97°
- Monday Night: Clear, Mild. Low: 66°
- Tuesday: Sunny, Breezy. High: 95°
The strong wind could expand the Bighorn Fire even more since we are expecting a southwest wind.
Consistent wind speeds will be as high as 15-20 mph in Tucson and even higher up the mountain.
Wind gusts are a different animal. In Tucson wind gusts might reach between 30-40 mph while on the mountains where the fire is happening, we could see values over 50 mph.
Our rain chances have dried up in Southern Arizona. Our next chance of rain won't come up the middle of this week.
