THE CLIFF NOTES
Today – Sunny & breezy. 90°, west-southwest wind 15-25 MPH.
Tonight – Clear. 62°, southeast wind 5-10 MPH.
Tomorrow – Mostly sunny. 87°, southwest wind 10-15 MPH.
Another round of gusty winds heading back to work and school.
A low pressure trough cranks up west-southwest winds to the 15-25 MPH range today. Highs this afternoon reach the upper 80s to low 90s, running a few degrees below average. Winds decrease after sunset this evening.
The storm system responsible for today’s winds drops down the Colorado River Valley the next 72 hours. Enough moisture trickles in to the state to warrant a slight shower chance early on Wednesday. Tucson stands a 10% chance of showers for the middle portion of the work week, with Pinal, Graham and Greenlee Counties standing the best chance of rain. Highs Tuesday and Wednesday drop into the mid to upper 80s.
Daytime highs soar back to the low 90s heading into the weekend. Models indicate a new storm system cranking up the winds once again. 20 MPH gusts are possible as early as Friday.
