FORECAST DISCUSSION

The average high for early February is 67°. We’ll come very close to that mark to wrap the work week.

Highs across Metro Tucson reach the mid 60s this afternoon. East-northeast winds around 10-15 MPH prevail today, with occasional gusts to 20 MPH possible. Lows tonight drop to the upper 30s.

Easterly breezes up to 20 MPH develop tomorrow afternoon, thanks to a weak storm system passing by. Thereafter, high pressure takes command of the forecast. Daytime highs range from the low 70s Saturday to the low 80s for much of next week. Monday’s forecast high of 80° comes a degree shy of tying the record set back in 2006.

Breezes return Monday and Tuesday, easing up by the middle of next week.
