FORECAST DISCUSSION

CYM86-TUkAAWZ15

Showers not nearly as widespread to wrap the work week.

Expect a 30% chance of showers/snow above 4,500 feet today. Precipitation tapers off by late afternoon as highs peak in the low 50s. Overnight lows head at or below the freezing mark outside of Tucson city limits.

This weekend looks much drier thanks to high pressure west of the state. Saturday features partly cloudy skies. A weak storm system brings a 10% chance of showers Sunday, but most of southern Arizona won’t see rain. High temps peak in the low to mid 50s, with morning lows bottoming out in the low to mid 30s.

Temperatures warm up for the first half of next week. Tucson can anticipate a run at 60° highs as early as Tuesday under mostly sunny skies.
