Gusty winds & spotty showers to start the work week.

A cold front sweeps across Arizona today. There is a 30% chance of showers in Metro Tucson from late morning until late afternoon, with better odds north of the Old Pueblo. Expect gusty west-southwest winds around 15-25 MPH during the daytime hours. Highs reach the upper 60s, running 3-5° below average for late November.

Lows the next few nights bottom out in the upper 30s to low 40s for the lower elevations of eastern Pima County. A few spots in Santa Cruz and Cochise Counties may drop to the freezing mark by daybreak Wednesday.

High pressure parks near the state much of the week, supplying ample sunshine as soon as tomorrow. Highs range from the upper 60s Tuesday to mid to upper 70s for Thanksgiving and Black Friday.
