PHOENIX -- A cold front moving toward Arizona will drive windy conditions on Friday.  Rain chances are slim, so blowing dust becomes a possibility. 

Much of the state is under a Wind Advisory today, starting at 11 a.m. and lasting until the early evening hours.  Winds will be out of the southwest with gusts up to 50 mph. The Valley is not under that advisory, but could see gusts up to 30 mph this afternoon.

The Valley is under a High Pollution Advisory today for particulates, as we anticipate blowing dust that could make it tougher to breathe.  It's also a "No Burn Day" in Maricopa County. 

Wind speeds will finally decrease overnight tonight and rain chances increase. 

In the Valley, there's only a 20 percent chance of showers, mainly after midnight tonight and during the morning hours Saturday.  On Saturday afternoon, expect partly cloudy skies and a high of just 74 degrees. 

Similar temperatures are expected Sunday under mostly sunny skies.

Overnight lows will be a bit cooler, bottoming out to the low 40s to low 50s for the next few mornings.
