TUCSON - Clearing skies and slightly cooler temperatures will round out the weekend.
Subtropical moisture that brought us the overnight cloud cover and isolated showers is moving east today, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. Besides a few leftover clouds things should remain relatively dry for southern Arizona. Daytime highs will remain slightly above average to end the weekend with a forecast high in the mid 70s.
A weak high pressure ridge builds into the southwest by midweek starting a warming a trend. By Thanksgiving Day highs will rise to near 80 which is about 5-10 degrees above normal. Little change expected thereafter with highs hovering right around 80 for the long holiday weekend.
