PHOENIX - We're already starting to see gusty winds across our state this morning as a cold front and an area of low pressure move in from the Great Basin.
This morning's gusty winds are sticking around through most of the day with the strongest winds expected in the upper Colorado River Valley. Places like Bullhead City, Lake Havasu City, and the Lake Mead Recreation Area are under a Wind Advisory through 6 p.m. today. Winds there could gust as high as 45 mph by this afternoon. These gusty winds and very dry conditions will also create a heightened fire threat so there is also a Red Flag Warning for those same areas.
We'll see strong wind gusts between 25 and 30 mph in spots along the Mogollon Rim and across northern Arizona today. Areas in the lower Colorado River Valley will also see gusty winds as high as 25 mph. Here in the Valley, we'll just see occasional breezes between 15 and 20 mph by this afternoon.Read full story
