TODAY’S BEAMISH BLOGCAST
THE CLIFF NOTES
Today – Sunny. 88°, northwest wind 5 MPH.
Tonight – Mostly clear. 52°, southeast wind 5-10 MPH.
Tomorrow – Partly cloudy. 85°, southwest wind 5-10 MPH.
Today’s record high is 89° set back in 1999. Highs this afternoon will come very close to that mark.
High pressure anchored over Arizona & Utah drives the mercury roughly 15° above average. Expect upper 80s this afternoon in Metro Tucson under sunny skies. Lows tonight bottom out in the low 50s, which is mild for mid November standards.
A pair of storm systems impacts the state over the next 7 days. The first cold front sweeps through late Wednesday into Thursday, serving to drop temperatures 15-20° off today’s forecast highs. The Old Pueblo peaks in the low to mid 70s Thursday and Friday. Overnight lows crash to the low to mid 40s.
Storm system #2 is slated to arrive early next week. Cloud cover increases Sunday, followed by a 20% shower chance Monday. Confidence in this rain chance is low, as models are disagreeing over the amount of moisture this storm system can tap into.
