TUCSON, Ariz. — A warning of dangerous fire conditions covers much of eastern and southeastern Arizona as a storm system moves across the region Tuesday.

A red flag warning issued by the National Weather Service extended from parts of Coconino, Apache and Navajo counties in northeastern Arizona southward to Cochise, Santa Cruz and parts of Pima and Pinal counties in southeastern Arizona.

And large swaths of the rest of the state were under a wind advisory or a high wind warning.

The National Weather Service’s Flagstaff office said calmer weather is expected Wednesday.

But another storm system will bring more wind and elevated fire conditions Thursday, when much of the state will be under a fire weather watch.
