FORECAST DISCUSSION

Santa brings a strong cold front for Christmas Day.

An isolated shower or two can’t be ruled out today. Afternoon highs peak in the low 60s, with Christmas Night featuring temps bottoming out in the low 30s. A stray shower may develop 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. Sunday morning features low temperatures in the mid to upper 20s metrowide.

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.
