TUCSON - Winter-like weather makes a comeback to start February.
The Old Pueblo finally felt a little more like winter to kick off the weekend and the month of February. With a daytime high of 61° at TIA Tucson saw its first below average temperature all year to go along with some light rain and mountain snow.
Cool air will really settle in behind a passing cold front tonight with lows dipping into the mid 30s for Tucson and sub-freezing conditions across parts Santa Cruz, Cochise and Graham Counties. There may be enough leftover moisture for patchy fog to develop early Sunday morning.
The weekend rounds out with more sun but cool temperatures stuck in the low to mid 60s as we sit in between weather systems.
Our next cold front is forecast to move through on Monday bringing another round of gusty winds and a reinforcing shot of cool air. We may tap into enough moisture for a few isolated showers Monday afternoon and evening.
With this pattern change cool air will stick around well into the upcoming work week with daytime highs remaining 3-8° below average.
