This Just In: It Is Windy As Hell

Posted By on Mon, Apr 8, 2013 at 1:19 PM

Sure, this isn't much of a revelation unless you've been inside of a bunker all day, but the winds are whirling about the desert today, coating cars across the city in fine layers of dust and making everyone lament visiting the car wash this weekend.

Just how strong are the winds getting today, you ask? Well, according to the National Weather Service, we may see gusts around 50 m.p.h. in Southern Arizona today — just fast enough to make you regret going outside for lunch.

The winds are said to be a part of a low-pressure system sweeping in, which should cool things down to the mid 70s for the next couple days, bringing conditions that are similar to what people in other parts of the country call "spring weather" to our beloved arid wasteland.

If you're driving on the interstates today, just make sure to be careful — there are dust-warnings aplenty, and there's a good chance that visibility will be affected. Drive slow, homies.

(And to answer your question, Rialto Theatre, that is "WTF is up with this bullshit wind today." And we also love it because we get to say "haboob.")
