A much quieter stretch of weather on tap for the Sonoran Desert.

High pressure slowly emerges from the Pacific. Daytime highs range from the upper 50s today to the mid 60s Wednesday with ample sunshine. Tucson’s average high for mid January is 65°.

Overnight lows the next few nights likely drop at or below the freezing mark outside of Tucson city limits. Expect lows in the upper 20s to low 30s for communities like Tanque Verde, Oro Valley, Marana, Vail and Corona de Tucson.

Beyond Wednesday, uncertainty exists in the forecast as several storm systems move across the west. Models hint at an approaching cold front this weekend, which may produce a few valley rain/mountain snow showers. The exact timing and amounts remains unclear.
