Windy/Wet/Cool Weather returning after today

The National Weather Service says today will be the warmest day of the week with temperatures cooling by 20-degrees by Friday. Today will be the last day with above average temperatures for at least the next 7-days, if not longer. Southwest flow ahead of a Pacific trough will cause increasing winds this afternoon, gusting to around 25-mph. Tomorrow, a windy day is in store with sustained winds out of southwest at 25-to-35-mph; gusts of 40-to-50-mph should be expected during the afternoon and evening hours. A cold front will move into western Arizona during the afternoon and move eastward across the region during the evening hours. Moisture along and just behind the front are sufficient for a chance of showers and thunderstorms with the highest chances from around Flagstaff to the north and west. With the colder temperatures behind the front, we could see a few snowflakes as low as 7000-feet after midnight, but no accumulation is expected. We’ll see breezy conditions with a slight chance of showers on Friday and again on Sunday and into early next week. Looking farther out into the 8-14 day period, cooler and wetter than normal conditions continue to be favored.
