TUCSON - Cooler temperatures starting today.
Daytime highs will come down a little closer to average this afternoon as our high pressure ridge moves east. According to Meteorologist John Patrick, Sunday should bring highs in mid 60s under mostly sunny skies.
A weak cold front on Christmas Eve brings more cloud cover and drops the temperatures a few more degrees. Most of the precipitation will stay in Northern Arizona with this system but we could see a few light showers throughout the day.
Christmas day looks cool in the wake of our cold front with highs in the upper 50s, about 5 below average. Mostly sunny skies and relatively light winds wrap up the holiday forecast.
Watching for a stronger system to dip into the Southern Arizona on Thursday bringing a better chance of showers to the region. Temperatures will also be kept in check staying below average through the end of the week.
