Heat affects everyone differently. In order to better address heat risk, the NWS developed the experimental Heat Risk forecast. This forecast takes into account a multitude of human factors. You can find that forecast at . Let's break it down. #azwx

Do you ever feel like a broken record? Well, we sure do! 😬 Just another typical week during the dry season where we have afternoon breezes across the region. Expect warming temperatures through much of the week. #azwx

Maybe you're like us and a bit bored with this weather. Here's one of our favorite weather photos taken by Al Comello of rain (what's that?!) over Sedona. Got any favorite weather photos? Share them on this post! #azwx

Proof that we did try to toggle off the wind and toggle on precipitation. 🤪 Unfortunately, our typical windy spring continues through next week. Expect warming temperatures, breezy to gusty winds, and continued dry conditions through the end of next week. #azwx

It was yet another windy day across northern Arizona on Friday. The highest wind gust reports we received are shown below. Look for lighter winds on Saturday and Sunday. But hey, it's northern AZ, lighter does not mean light. Winds will remain gusty each afternoon. #azwx

There is a heightened fire threat the next couple of days as winds increase. Be very careful with fire or anything that could start a fire. No campfires or target shooting, don't park on dry grass, make sure trailer chains aren't dragging, keep cigarettes inside the car. #azwx

We continue to test new hardware and software for our next generation of upper air observations. This data is invaluable for our meteorologist and computer models! Here's a snapshot of us preparing a comparison observation between our old system and the new one! #azwx
