More sunshine, less wind for your Wednesday.

High pressure over the southwest brings mostly sunny skies this afternoon. Tucson reaches the upper 80s today with southwest winds around 10-15 MPH. Overnight lows drop to the low 60s under mostly clear skies.

The latter portion of the week looks unsettled, as a cold front heads toward the state. Gusty southwest winds up to 35 MPH develop Thursday and Friday. A 20% chance of showers and storms is possible by Friday night, increasing to 40% Saturday morning. Rain chances cease by Saturday afternoon as the front exits the state.

Daytime highs Friday and Saturday drop to the mid/upper 70’s, which is 10-15° below average for mid May. Warmer weather returns early next week, as highs range from the mid 80s Sunday to the low 90s Monday and Tuesday.

Not a bad way to wrap up a Tuesday in southern Arizona. My thanks to viewer Robert Cline for last night’s sunset scene from Oracle.
