Dry weather will be the theme with an increase in southwest winds on Thursday. There is a wind advisory for Coconino County from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Winds could gust as high as 45 mph there. Areas of blowing dust are possible along with areas of smoke due to the lightning-caused Whiskey Fire near Flagstaff.
A red flag warning is also in place Thursday for portions of Coconino and Mohave counties due to the strong winds and relative humidity values dropping between 10-15 percent.
In the Valley, 25 mph gusts will be possible in the afternoon and evening Thursday.
Looking ahead to next week, a low-pressure system could draw in some tropical moisture and increase rain chances Sunday night through midweek.
