FORECAST DISCUSSION

TG2015

Showers for some portions of southern Arizona on Thanksgiving.

While Tucson stays dry for the holiday, central and eastern Cochise County stand a 30% chance of showers. Morning clouds gradually decrease this afternoon, with highs reaching the upper 60s to low 70s in the Old Pueblo. Showers start to taper off by late afternoon for places like Douglas, Willcox and Bisbee.

For Black Friday shoppers, expect partly cloudy skies and overnight lows in the low 40s. Daytime highs tomorrow peak in the upper 60s under partly cloudy skies.

Mostly sunny skies prevail for the second half of the holiday weekend. High temps should remain in the 60s and 70s through the middle of next week. Nighttime lows bottom out in the upper 30s for much of Metro Tucson.
