Windy Morning Here In Tucson

View of early morning lights of north part of Tucson at a bit after 6:00 am MST today. Most weather attention today is focused on the developing storm in the northeast U.S. - image at bottom is of a snowy morning in Indianapolis.

Looks like rest of February will be dry, but it is quite windy in parts of town this early morning - chilly east wind of 20 to 30 mph here at house. Winds at 10-m (from 06 UTC WRF-GFS forecast) above are valid at 10:00 am this morning. Winds at airport yesterday gusted to 33 mph from the north-northwest; similar today, but from the east. Forecast sounding below from the same model run is for Sonoita at 10:00 am this morning - strong winds below 700 mb have already led to gusts to 46 mph at Mt. Hopkins RAWS site early this morning.
