Cool and windy start to the weekend

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - A few of weather disturbances moving north of the area will cause cooler temperatures and locally breezy to windy conditions.

There's a Wind Advisory issued for portions of Imperial County is now in effect until 1 p.m. Saturday (MST) for strong gusts up to 45 MPH.

Even though Yuma and Imperial Valley aren't included in any wind alerts, winds will still have an impact starting tonight and through Saturday afternoon with gusts 20-40 MPH will be expected.

Unhealthy air quality and blowing dust will be a concern from these stronger winds.

High pressure will rebuild into the Desert Southwest throughout the weekend leading to another warm-up early next week where temperatures will be a few degrees above normal.
