FORECAST DISCUSSION

After the warmest October on record for the Old Pueblo, temperatures finally begin to cool off.

A cold front approaches the state from the Pacific over the next 48 hours. This feature returns daytime highs to near seasonal levels. Temperatures this afternoon through the remainder of the work week peak in the upper 70s to low 80s in Metro Tucson. Mostly sunny skies prevail today and tomorrow.

By Thursday, gusty winds kick up as the front enters western Arizona. A stray shower or two can’t be ruled out, especially in the White Mountains of Graham and Greenlee Counties. Breezes relax heading into the weekend, as daytime highs reach the low to mid 80s.
