Calmer winds today and much cooler temperatures behind the cold front that is now moving east.
Valley gusts yesterday topped out at 30 mph in the Valley.
More high wind gusts across the state:
Flagstaff: 49 mph
Winslow: 45 mph
Show Low 40 mph
Window Rock: 40 mph
Today's "cooling" will keep Valley temperatures in the 80s.
Our next system moves through Friday night with another round of gusty wind and even more cooling, keeping Saturday's high right around 80°.
I don't expect that trend to continue. In fact, I see signs of our first 100° of the season by Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. Right about on schedule, as the average date of our first 100° reading in Phoenix is May 2.
