TUCSON – Atmospheric perfection is on the outs.
Approaching southern Arizona is a pair of storm systems. The first system is the remnants of what is now Tropical Storm Sergio. While the remnants of Sergio remain well south of the state, tropical moisture fuels scattered to widespread showers starting Thursday night.
Primetime for widespread rain appears to be Friday morning and afternoon, tapering off Friday evening.
Storm system #2 enters the state from the northwest Saturday. Expect another round of scattered showers mainly the first half of the weekend. Some of these showers may linger into Sunday as well.

Metro Tucson may receive 0.50-1.50″ rain through Sunday. Because of the closer proximity to Sergio’s remnants, towns along the International Border could pick up 1-2″ rain.
Daytime highs range from the low 80s this afternoon to the low to mid 70s Friday through Monday. Tucson’s average high for mid October is around 86-87°.
