Thursday’s Tucson Forecast: Autumn winds arriving soon

Tumbling temps and increasing breezes are the main weather headlines over the next week.

A pair of moisture-starved storm systems advance toward Arizona. The first system settles into the state Friday, cranking up easterly winds. Gusts up to 25 MPH are possible starting late Friday morning & continuing through lunchtime Saturday.

Highs to wrap the week reach the mid to upper 70s, which is fairly typical for this time of year.

Sunday features a break from the breezes. Models indicate a second storm system grazing the state early next week. A cold front not only cranks up the winds, but drops temperatures. Highs Monday and Tuesday struggle to reach the 70° mark, while overnight lows bottom out in the upper 30s to low 40s.

Portions of Santa Cruz and Cochise County may wake up to freezing temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday.
