The average sea-level pressure gradients that produce sustained surface winds above 8 kt for at least six consecutive hours during the cool season at predetermined key stations in or adjacent to Arizona are investigated. Only wind directions with northerly or easterly components are included in the developmental data sample. Graphs are provided that relate the derived pressure gradients to varying surface wind speeds at each key station.
