FORECAST DISCUSSION

A cool-down arrives just in time for Christmas weekend.

Highs this afternoon reach the mid 60s under partly cloudy skies. Christmas Eve looks dry for the Old Pueblo, as temperatures during the evening hours drop to the upper 50s.

Santa brings a strong cold front for Christmas Day, which may pop an isolated shower or two. Afternoon highs peak in the low 60s, with Christmas Night featuring temps bottoming out in the low to mid 30s. A stray shower can’t be ruled out Saturday, but the bulk of the rain & snow will be across New Mexico.

Temperatures continue to crash Saturday afternoon, with Tucson struggling to reach the mid 40s. Saturday’s forecast high of 46° is three degrees shy of tying the record for coldest daytime high, set in 1904. Morning lows for much of next week drop at or below the freezing mark.

Models hint at a new storm system Tuesday, possibly developing a few isolated showers. Temperatures likely remain on the cool side for the final week of 2015.
