The system passing north continues to affect us until the middle of the week, bringing breeze to windy conditions. Today, another fire alarm has been issued in parts of Southeast Arizona. Remember that one less spark means one less wildfire.
It is also a windy day and the biggest concern is the danger of fire. The Red Flag Alert will be in effect tonight from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm in Santa Cruz, Kochis, Graham, all of Greenlee County, and in eastern Pima County and Pinal County. Sustained winds vary from 15 mph to 25 mph, and gusts are around 35 mph. Outdoor burning, outdoor target shooting, and charcoal grills are prohibited. Also, dispose of cigarettes properly and make sure the chain is not dragged from the vehicle. Southeastern Arizona has been hit by moderate to severe droughts and the air is very dry. One less spark means one less wildfire.
When this system finally begins to pass, the wind will recede slightly tomorrow before it recovers again on Wednesday. By Thursday, the winds will be weaker and temperatures will drop in the mid-1980s, making it the warmest place.
As you work towards the weekend, high pressure ridges begin to form. This raises the temperature below 100 degrees Celsius. Remember to drink plenty of water and limit intense outdoor activities, as the hottest temperatures of the year are predicted so far.
Today: Windy, sunny and warm. High: 91 °
Tonight: Calm and clear. Low: 56 °
Tomorrow: It’s refreshing, warm and sunny. High: 95 °
