The results have drawn criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike.

This week, the Valley — and much of the state — saw high wind speeds and cooler temperatures.

While that may be the norm for other states, it’s one that causes conversation and concern in Arizona.

Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport saw wind speeds above 50 mph, while parts of northern Arizona peaked at more than 80 mph.

The National Weather Service warns this may not be the weekend to travel.

We want to hear from you.
