80s, gusty winds return this weekend

TUCSON - One more 90 degree day before the 80s return.

The Old Pueblo woke up to one of the warmest mornings all year long with a morning low of 64 degrees. The fourth straight afternoon with highs in the 90s is expected to round out your workweek even with partly cloudy skies.

A weather disturbance moves through Northern Arizona on Saturday dropping temperatures back down into the 80s while also picking up our winds. Gusts in Tucson to 35mph are possible with gusts over 40mph likely for parts of Cochise County on Saturday afternoon.

A Wind Advisory is in effect on Saturday for areas south and east of Tucson from 11am-7pm. Strong winds will make for difficult driving conditions and pockets of blowing dust.

Gusty winds and dry air combine for a Red Flag Warning from 11am-8pm Saturday. Any fires that do develop will see rapid and sporadic growth.

The mid to upper 80s will stick around into next week. Check out your True View 4 extended forecast by clicking here.
