Tonight – Clear, cool. 34°, southeast wind 5 MPH.
Tomorrow – Sunny. 65°, northwest wind 5 MPH.
Hello sunshine and a slight warming trend.
A dry pattern sets up shop the next several days. High pressure over Nevada drives daytime highs in the low 60s this afternoon. Expect northeast winds around 5-15 MPH, with occasional gusts to 20 MPH in a few spots.
Lows overnight drop to the low to mid 30s, with freezing temps possible in outlying areas of Metro Tucson.
The average high for mid January is 65°. We’ll return to that mark tomorrow with ample sunshine. Skies turn partly cloudy heading into the weekend as a storm system clips the northeastern portion of the state. A few mountain snow showers are possible late Friday & Sunday in the White Mountains. Valley floors should stay dry.
Another dome of high pressure emerges early next week. Monday may feature a few metro locations making a run at the low 70s.

Winter Wonderland over the Sky Islands, taken by Pete Mecozzi at Chiricahua National Monument in Cochise County. Pete says while most everyone made their way up Mount Lemmon, he had Chiricahua National Monument all to himself. Well played!
