Spring Fling And The Winds

The University of Arizona is holding it's annual spring fling carnival today through Sunday. This event includes many carnival-type rides, as per above, and various booths up and down the length of the mall. (Edited to add important correction: the carnival starts tomorrow afternoon on Friday the 13th and today is setup, preparations, and testing of the big rides.)

So they are possibly faced with keeping things together during today's strong wind event. The NWS grid forecast for the University calls for possible gusts to 47 mph this afternoon. Below is the 06 UTC WRF-GFS forecast for 10-m winds from Atmo, valid at 5:00 pm MST today. Forecast indicates a widespread wind event affecting especially eastern Arizona and western New Mexico.
