TUCSON – A quick break between storm systems.
In the wake of a departing trough, this afternoon features ample sunshine and seasonably warm temperatures. Highs today peak in the low to mid 60s for Metro Tucson & southeastern Arizona.
Clearing skies overnight allow lows to bottom out in the mid to upper 30s metro-wide.
Cloud cover increases tomorrow, ahead of a new storm system off the California coast. While a stray shower can’t be ruled out late Saturday afternoon, the best chance for scattered showers arrives Saturday night into early Sunday morning.

Valley rainfall totals should stay under 0.25″, while Mount Lemmon may pick up 1-3″ of new snow. Showers cease by Sunday afternoon.
Computer models are at odds over next week’s forecast. Isolated showers are possible again Wednesday and Thursday, but forecast confidence is low in this scenario playing out.
