Winds really cranked up around our state on Monday as a cold front moved through.

Here in the Valley, gusts topped out between 25 and 30 mph with wind gusts well over 40 mph for many spots up north.

As winds shift out of the north behind the front overnight, gusts will stay high along the Colorado River Valley and near south facing slopes of mountain ranges across our state.

As far as temperatures go, they were the warmest they've been all year. In Phoenix, we hit a high of 87 degrees with highs in the low 90s to our southwest through Gila Bend and Yuma.

But, this cold front will cool things down a bit for us on Tuesday.

Valley highs will drop to the upper 70s to low 80s after early morning lows in the 50s.

Up north, most spots will feel about a 10 degree drop Tuesday afternoon.

Conditions will stay dry around our state under mostly sunny skies for the rest of the week.

Valley highs will remain in the low 80s with overnight lows in the mid 50s early each morning.
