TUCSON - Southern Arizona rounds out the weekend with a warming trend.
Temperatures are on the rise today but we'll manage to keep the highs in the mid 80s for Tucson, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. High pressure building into the region is to blame for our next big warm up as temps peak near 90 on Election Day Tuesday. Temperatures will remain around ten degrees above average through midweek with generally sunny skies.
Our first significant fall system looks to make its way here by late next week bringing some big changes to southern Arizona. By Friday temperatures will drop into the upper 70s and further cooling will have us flirting with highs in the 60s by the weekend. Gusty winds will also accompany this system and some models even hint at a slight chance of valley rain and mountain snow for Friday and Saturday.
