FORECAST DISCUSSION

One more warm day before several changes arrive.

High pressure departs to the east this afternoon, according to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Metro Tucson reaches the mid 80s today under partly cloudy skies, running 11-13° above normal. Cloud cover decreases tonight as lows bottom out in the mid 50s.

The first of two cold fronts sweeps across the state late tonight. This serves to drop daytime highs to more seasonable levels Thursday, with the Old Pueblo peaking in the low 70s. Expect overnight lows in the low to mid 40s Thursday & Friday night.

Gusty winds kick off the weekend, followed by increasing cloud cover Sunday. Another cold front enters the state Monday, developing scattered showers & high elevation snow. Daytime highs to start the new work week peak in the upper 60s to low 70s. Rain/snow amounts remain unclear at the moment.
