FORECAST DISCUSSION

Strong warming trend takes over the rest of the week.

High pressure off the Pacific coast supplies increasing temps & plenty of sunshine. Daytime highs range from the upper 60s today to the low 80s Friday and Saturday. Overnight lows bottom out in the 40s metro-wide, with 30s outside of eastern Pima County.

Gusty winds up to 20 MPH are possible Sunday as a storm system passes north of the state.

Models are at odds over what evolves in the forecast next week. The American GFS model hints at valley rain by Tuesday, while the European model keeps a storm system over the Pacific Northwest. For now, the official call is for increasing clouds and isolated mountain showers. Highs Tuesday drop to the mid 70s, which is a few degrees above average for late November.
