Enjoy the morning showers, because more typical Spring weather awaits.

Rain chances for Tucson drop from 30% this morning to 10% this afternoon. Areas east of Tucson will continue to see a chance of scattered showers through late afternoon. The Old Pueblo peaks in the upper 70s for daytime highs.

High pressure briefly builds in tomorrow and Thursday, surging afternoon temperatures to the mid/upper 80s. Thursday afternoon features gusty winds developing, as a trough approaches from the Great Basin. This trough stalls out near the Four Corners this weekend, bringing a daily round of breezes and partly cloudy skies. A few showers are possible in the White Mountains Friday through Sunday.

Gusty winds are expected to weaken early next week, in response to high pressure expanding across the West Coast.

Mares’ tails over Tucson, taken yesterday by Rick Haase. These clouds develop when winds aloft blow the ice crystals into this feathery pattern. At times, mares’ tails can foreshadow a rain chance. Great capture Rick!
