PHOENIX -- A storm moving through the West will bring a bit of a cool-down for Arizona starting today.
Tuesday brought another record-tying high of 86 degrees in the Valley. Today, look for mostly sunny skies by the afternoon and a high of 82 degrees.
Winds will pick up ahead of tonight's dry cold front, with Valley winds expected this afternoon out of the southwest at about 10 to 15 mph. A Red Flag Warning is in effect today for Southeastern Arizona, including Tucson for strong winds and low relative humidity. No rain or snow is expected in the state, with most of the moisture from this storm system staying to our north.
Overnight lows will drop off a bit more tonight, dipping to the mid 40s to low 50s across the Valley.
Afternoon highs will be lower tomorrow at about 76 degrees in the Valley under sunny skies. That's still about five degrees above average for this time of year.
Friday will bring more upper 70s and sunshine before a weekend that will be spent in the low 80s. No rain is expected in the next seven days.
