Perfection to wrap the week, but a big change looms.

High pressure over the state drives daytime temperatures into the low 80s today and tomorrow. Ample sunshine is expected heading into the weekend with winds in the 5-10 MPH range.

A pair of storm systems impact the state next week. Sunday features a low pressure trough arriving from Baja California, with scattered showers and high elevation snow possible. Scattered showers, snow above 5,000 feet and gusty winds are possible Monday, ahead of a strong cold front. Valley rain/snow tapers off Monday night, after highs struggle to reach the upper 50s.

Odds are increasing for Tucson experiencing the first freeze of the Fall Tuesday morning. Upper 20s to low 30s are possible waking up Wednesday morning as well.
