FORECAST DISCUSSION

An Autumn beauty this afternoon, but changes are on tap later this week.

High pressure moves across the state the next few afternoons. As a result, metro high temps reach the mid 80s. Expect sunny skies today with increasing cloud cover on tap Wednesday.

Developing off the Pacific Northwest coast is a cold front slated to move in by late week. Tucson stands a 30% chance of showers late Thursday. Rain chances increase to 50% on Friday with daytime highs struggling to reach the low 70s. Showers taper off late Friday night as the cold front exits the state.

Valley rainfall amounts may reach the 0.25-0.50” range. A dusting of snow can’t be ruled out above 7,000 feet.

Halloween starts on cool note. Morning lows bottom out in the upper 40s, but afternoon highs rebound to the mid 70s under mostly sunny skies. The evening hours look mostly clear with temps in the low 60s.
