Warm start to the week, but it could be a soggy finish.

Daytime highs run 5-7° above average this afternoon. This translates to the mid/upper 80s for Metro Tucson with mostly sunny skies today. The White Mountains may see a stray shower or two pop up this afternoon as a weak storm system grazes the state.

High pressure dominates the first half of the week, keeping afternoon temperatures in the mid to upper 80s for the Old Pueblo through Wednesday.

Models continue to show a pattern change for week’s end. An approaching trough dives into the southwest from northern California. This cranks up the winds as early as Thursday, with a 20% chance of showers late in the day. Rain chances increase to 40% Friday as high temps drop to the low 70s. Showers taper off early Saturday, followed by clearing skies for Halloween night.
