TODAY’S BEAMISH BLOGCAST
THE CLIFF NOTES
Today – Sunny. 67°, west-northwest wind 10-15 MPH.
Tonight – Clear. 38°, southeast wind 5 MPH.
Tomorrow – Mostly sunny. 65°, northwest wind 5-10 MPH.
Temperatures return to late February reality.
Highs today peak in the upper 60s. Temperatures this afternoon will run a few degrees below average under sunny skies. A departing cold front cranks up the winds east of Metro Tucson today, with 20-30 MPH westerly wind gusts possible across Cochise, Graham and Greenlee Counties.
Overnight lows bottom out in the mid to upper 30s for Metro Tucson, which is cooler than the last several nights.
Temperatures for the first half of the weekend return to the low 70s. Thereafter, a great deal of uncertainty exists in the forecast. Sunday may feature a cold front sweeping across the state, followed by another cold front to start the work week. This second cold front may produce a slight chance of valley rain/mountain snow Monday and Tuesday.
Confidence in rain/mountain snow chances remains low, as models are at odds over the impact from the frontal passage. The more likely scenario that plays out early next week is daytime highs running below average.
