Daytime highs peak in the upper 70s to low 80s this afternoon. High pressure departing to the east supplies temperatures roughly 10° above average for late February. Expect westerly winds around 10-15 MPH today.
The first of two cold fronts sweeps across Arizona tomorrow, dropping temperatures 10-15° off today’s levels. Gusty winds up to 20 MPH may develop Thursday afternoon east of Tucson. After highs reach the upper 60s tomorrow, lows bottom out in the upper 30s.
Highs return to the 70s this weekend, before a second cold front enters the state. This feature supplies gusty winds as soon as Sunday, followed by a slight shower chance. Tucson’s rain chances range from 10% Monday to 30% on Tuesday. Exact rain/mountain snow totals remain unclear this far out.
