Another quick-hitting storm system arrives at the end of the work week.
High pressure briefly builds in the next 48 hours, keeping southern Arizona dry. Daytime highs peak in the mid 60s this afternoon to the low 70s Thursday. Mostly sunny skies prevail tomorrow afternoon.
As a cold front advances toward the state from California, it likely loses much of its moisture over the Sierra Nevadas. For the Sonoran Desert, a slight shower chance exists Friday morning & afternoon.
Like yesterday, favored areas for isolated showers/mountain snow should be Pinal, Graham and Greenlee Counties.
The upcoming weekend looks picture perfect, featuring sunny skies and a brief warming trend. Highs Saturday reach the mid 60s, rising to the low 70s on Sunday.
