Gusty winds, blowing dust and high fire danger

PHOENIX - Winds are cranking up across the state as we track a disturbance moving across the Four Corners.    

Phoenix is under a Wind Advisory until 7 p.m. tonight. Watch for areas of blowing dust in and around the Valley as wind gusts top 30 to 40 mph. 

These strong winds combined with our very dry conditions will also bring a high fire danger to parts of our state. Red Flag Warnings are in effect for parts of central and southern Arizona, including right here in the Valley until 8 p.m.   

There is a slight chance of showers along the Mogollon Rim today, but the Valley looks to stay dry as highs fall into the upper 80s.  

We'll warm back into the low 90s by Thursday before dropping again as the next storm system approaches.  

Expect another windy day in the Valley on Friday as highs fall back into the 80s heading into next weekend.
