FORECAST DISCUSSION

Gusty winds greet the Sonoran Desert on this first Monday of October.

A departing cold front kicks up 15-25 MPH westerly winds. Highs peak in the mid 80s across Metro Tucson under mostly sunny skies. Areas near the New Mexico state line could see a stray shower pop up early in the day. Cool temps are on tap tonight, with much of southern Arizona bottoming out in the 40s and 50s.

Breezes ease up the rest of the work week, thanks to a dry westerly flow aloft. Daytime highs range from the low 80s Tuesday to the low 90s Friday. Models indicate an area of low pressure developing near Baja California this weekend. This feature could produce isolated showers to start the upcoming weekend.
