FORECAST DISCUSSION

After a wet & white weekend, a warming trend commences.

High pressure parked over the state drives daytime temperatures roughly 10° above normal, according to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Metro Tucson peaks in the upper 70s to low 80s the next few days with abundant sunshine. Nighttime lows drop to the upper 40s to low 50s, which is a touch mild for late February standards.

The first of two cold fronts kicks through the state Thursday, knocking temperatures back to reality. Daytime highs for the end of the week reach the upper 60s to low 70s.

Cold front #2 takes aim at Arizona early next week. Gusty winds develop Sunday, followed by a slight shower chance Monday. Rain chances may continue into next Tuesday, but the exact timing remains unclear at the moment.
