FORECAST DISCUSSION

Trending toward a more January feel in the coming days.

Expect a mix of sun and clouds the next few days. Afternoon highs reach the mid/upper 60s, followed by lows out in the low/mid 40s.

A developing Pacific storm system brings the well-advertised pattern shift this weekend. Friday features a few isolated showers, with rain chances increasing Saturday through early Sunday. Low pressure looks to track south of the border, which may cut down rain/mountain snow totals. Southern Arizona could pick up 0.10-0.50″ rain in this timeframe, while 5-15″ snow is possible above 7,000 feet.

Temperatures struggle to reach the upper 50s to low 60s this weekend. Lows crash to the upper 30s for Metro Tucson Sunday and Monday morning.
