Forecast Discussion:

Hold on to your hats because it's going to be a windy few days heading into the weekend.

In the upper levels, a weak disturbance will move through the region, increasing winds out of the south at 15-20 mph this afternoon. Winds will turn more southwesterly tomorrow (Saturday) as the disturbance moves across the state.

By early Sunday, a stronger system will enter the region from the west, once again bringing southwesterly winds of 15-20 throughout the day. Rain chances will increase across northern and central Arizona on Monday as the main frontal passage sweeps across the state, finally turning winds westerly into the late afternoon and evening.

In regards to air quality, ozone will decrease down into the Good AQI category due to the active weather before rebounding on Tuesday. Blowing dust will be possible during windier periods, but daily levels overall will remain within the Good AQI category.

Have a great weekend!
