One cold front down, one more on the way.

Daytime highs reach the upper 70s today, according to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Sunny skies are on tap for the end of the work week, as temps run 5-7° above average for mid November. Lows overnight bottom out in the upper 40s to low 50s, accompanied by southeast winds around 10-20 MPH.

El Tour Saturday looks to be a breezy affair. East-southeast winds in the 15-25 MPH range linger through the early afternoon hours. Mostly sunny skies prevail as highs peak in the low 80s.

Clouds increase Sunday, ahead of our next storm system. Widespread showers & snow above 7,000 feet develops late Sunday night, tapering off Monday night. Valley rainfall totals look to be in the 0.25-0.50″ range, while Mount Lemmon may receive up to 1″ snow.

Highs struggle to reach the mid to upper 60s Monday and Tuesday, but recover to the mid 70s in time for Thanksgiving.
