A nice temperature rebound after the coldest morning since January 4th.

Temperatures bottomed out at 35° at Tucson International Airport this morning, according to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. High pressure builds in this afternoon, helping daytime highs peak in the mid 70s under mostly sunny skies. Overnight lows won’t be as cold tonight, with low to mid 40s metro-wide.

The thermometer peaks in the upper 70s Friday and Saturday. Cloud cover begins to increase this weekend, ahead of a series of storm systems. The first storm system arrives Sunday, which may produce scattered showers. A stronger cold front sweeps through Arizona Monday, bringing another chance of scattered showers and gusty winds.

Tuesday features sharply cooler temperatures in the wake of the frontal passage. Highs may struggle to reach the 60s, while lows Tuesday night may be close to freezing across much of Metro Tucson.
