Saturday will feel like two completely different days, much to the delight of soon-to-be Wildcat alums.
Chances are you’re waking up to showers and thunderstorms, especially along and north of a Sells-Tucson-Safford line. Rainfall amounts within this boundary look to fall in the 0.25-0.50″ range, which may break the Tucson rainfall record of 0.14″ for the 16th (set in 2007). The cold front responsible for the wet start clears the state by lunchtime, followed by more sunshine.
Saturday night looks great, with gradually clearing skies and temps in the 60s. No weather worries for the University of Arizona Spring commencement!
Sunday’s likely the nicest day of the two. Lots of sunshine, warmer temps as well. After spending Saturday in the 70s, highs Sunday afternoon will be roughly 10° warmer with lighter winds.
Climatology says the average high should be in the low 90s. Second weekend in a row we’re spared of typical May warmth.
