PHOENIX -- Another front is forecast to move through the West, driving more windy weather for Thursday and Friday. 

A Red Flag Warning is in place for both days for the entire state of Arizona for dangerously dry and windy conditions. Look for strong southerly winds with gusts up to 60 mph in the high country and up to 40 mph in the deserts of the state, including the Valley. 

Areas of patchy blowing dust are a possibility, especially Friday afternoon and evening.
