FORECAST DISCUSSION

A cool down’s coming, but will it be accompanied by rain chances?

Highs this afternoon run 18-20° above average. Partly cloudy skies prevail heading into the weekend, as daytime highs peak in the mid to upper 80s. Winds today and tomorrow will be in the 10-15 MPH range out of the west.

Sunday remains the transition day, as a cold front approaches from the Pacific. Clouds and breezes increase with highs dropping to the upper 70s. A 20% chance of showers enters the forecast late Monday night, increasing to 40% Tuesday. Highs drop to the 60s Monday through Wednesday of next week.

Models are at odds over the storm track, with the latest GFS model showing rain/mountain snow along the International Border. The European model has the storm track along the border, which would bring Tucson a better shot at measurable rainfall.
