Friday’s Tucson Forecast: Flirting with the 80s for the weekend




Today – Sunny. 73°, north-northwest wind 5-10 MPH.

Tonight – Clear. 46°, southeast wind 5 MPH.

Tomorrow – Sunny. 79°, east wind 10-15 MPH.



From the coolest morning since March 5th to a run at the 80s this weekend.

Daytime highs rebound to the low 70s this afternoon in Tucson. Sunshine today gives way to clear skies tonight. Lows tonight won’t be as cool as last night, but still bottom out in the mid 40s for Tucson & mid 30s in eastern Cochise County.

High pressure builds in from the Pacific this weekend, driving temperatures up and supplying sunny skies. Expect upper 70s to low 80s Saturday and Sunday. Easterly winds may occasionally gust to 20 MPH, especially downslope of north-south oriented mountain ranges like the Rincons and Chiricahuas.

Models indicate a cold front approaching for the middle of next week. This appears to be a moisture-starved system, but gusty winds and cooler temps are in the forecast. Highs Tuesday and Wednesday reach the upper 60s to low 70s with morning lows dropping to the low 40s.
