Strong winds are blowing across the Northern half of Arizona as an inside slider moves across the region. I am back after a few days mourning period for a loss of a family member so let’s get back to work. Read on for details and see the wind maps …
A strong 150 mph upper jet stream is leaving Arizona with a strong west to east flow. The Northern half of Arizona has already started their winds, but they will fast move southward into all metro areas from Phoenix, Pinal, and into Tucson as today moves along.
The Raiden Storm Wind Intensity Models have been released and you may view the information below.
Winds this afternoon/evening/night through the metros will shift from west to east to a more northwest to southeast approach, with Phoenix, Pinal, and Tucson, and Cochise County pegging over 40+ mph in gusts, with Flagstaff in at over 50+ mph in gusts.
The winds will wan by Tuesday morning.
