Winds ease off today, slight rain chance returning soon

TUCSON - A gusty, dusty start to the day.

Wind gusts as high as 46 MPH have been felt across southern Arizona this morning, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. A cold front finally pulls away from the state by mid-afternoon, with calmer winds prevailing. Highs today reach the upper 80's under sunny, but hazy skies.

A Red Flag Warning expires at 2 PM for southeastern Arizona.

Early next week features a new storm system moving in from California. Gusty winds return as soon as Sunday, lasting through Tuesday. Enough moisture creeps in for a slight chance of isolated showers Monday morning north of a Sasabe-Tucson-Safford line. Rainfall amounts will generally be less than 0.10".

Daytime highs next week likely stay under 90 degrees.
