Chasing history on this Leap Day.
This afternoon’s forecast high of 86° would break the old record of 85° set in 1988. Partly cloudy skies prevail today, with clearing expected around sunset. Lows tonight drop to the low 50s for much of Metro Tucson.
March starts off warm, courtesy of high pressure over the western US. Record tying temps are expected tomorrow, with near record heat possible Thursday. Ample sunshine is anticipated for the remainder of the work week.
Models continue to show a pattern shift by the weekend. Cloud cover increases Saturday, followed by gusty winds Sunday as a cold front moves in. It remains unclear if rain or mountain snow enters the picture early next week, but a cool down looks possible.
