TUCSON - Hang on to your hats this afternoon.
According to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish, a cold front swings through southern Arizona today. This will create westerly winds up to 25 MPH after lunchtime. Winds should subside after sunset as the front departs the state.
Afternoon highs today peak in the mid to upper 60's under mostly sunny skies.
Behind the front resides a slightly cooler airmass. Lows tonight bottom out in the upper 30's across the Tucson metro, with freezing temps over most of Santa Cruz & Cochise Counties. Highs tomorrow should be a few degrees below average for early February.
Super Bowl weekend features a return to above average temps and sunny skies. Expect upper 60's to low 70's Saturday through next week. Models are hinting at a potential storm by the middle of next week. Rain chances appear slim at this time, but that is subject to change.
