TODAY’S BEAMISH BLOGCAST
THE CLIFF NOTES
Today – Partly cloudy. 85°, north wind 5-10 MPH.
Tonight – Mostly clear. 63°, southeast wind 5 MPH.
Tomorrow – Mostly sunny, breezy. 90°, east wind 15-25 MPH.
After the coolest morning since May 23rd, temperatures start trending up.
A low pressure trough resides east of the state today. This feature may touch off a few isolated showers across Cochise, Graham and Greenlee Counties this afternoon. Partly cloudy skies prevail for Metro Tucson as highs reach the low to mid 80s.
Overnight lows won’t be as cool as last night, with eastern Pima County dropping to the low 60s.
The aforementioned low pressure trough tracks west heading into the weekend. This brings easterly breezes around 20-25 MPH Friday and Saturday. High pressure nudging into the state rises temperatures into the 90s as soon as tomorrow. Peak of the warmth arrives the middle of next week, where mid 90s can’t be ruled out in the Old Pueblo.
