Damp start to the day, but a drying trend for Halloween.

A departing cold front keeps in isolated showers through early this afternoon. Scattered showers continue through late afternoon across Cochise, Graham and Greenlee Counties, followed by clearing skies tonight. Lows drop to the upper 40s in Tucson, with mid 30s possible in eastern Cochise County.

Patchy fog may develop in the low lying areas of southern Arizona during the overnight hours.

High pressure moves in for the weekend, leading to ample sunshine for Halloween. Saturday sees highs peak in the mid 70s, while evening temps drop to the mid 60s. Low 80s are back in the forecast Sunday afternoon.

Models show a new storm system for the middle of next week. Gusty winds, isolated showers and cooler temps return as early as Tuesday, possibly lingering into next Friday.
