PHOENIX — It was another windy day across Arizona.
Peak gusts topped out between 30 to 40 mph in parts of the Valley.
Winds up north and out east were even stronger with gusts topping 50 mph in some spots!
These strong winds kicked up dust and impacted air quality, too.
Now, winds are backing off and temperatures are plummeting as cooler air settles in across Arizona.
Overnight lows will drop into the 40s across the Phoenix metro area and into the freezing 20s along much of the Mogollon Rim.
Afternoon temperatures will climb into the upper 70s in the Valley and into the 50s along the Rim on Wednesday.
We'll continue rebounding through Easter weekend as high pressure gradually builds in.
Expect highs in the mid 80s Thursday, near 90 degrees on Good Friday and in the low to mid 90s Saturday and Sunday.
