TUCSON - A fall like feeling is finally fast approaching southern Arizona.
Daytime highs have remained above average everyday so far this month and today was no different with a high of 91, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. High pressure hangs on for one more warm Wednesday before our first fall system makes its way here.
Our cool down which is currently off the California coast makes a push our way starting Thursday. Thursday afternoon brings winds out of the SSW in the 15-25mph range. Still expecting enough moisture associated with this system to support late week isolated showers and storms. The best timing for rainfall looks like late Thursday evening and into the morning hours Friday. General clearing is expected throughout the afternoon hours Friday with highs stuck 10-12 degrees below average putting Tucson in the mid to upper 70s. Warming trend starts into the weekend but high remain in the low to mid 80s.
