Octave bringing some moisture to southern Arizona

TUCSON - Highs coming down with sub-tropical moisture streaming in.

Columbus Day brings a beauty to southern Arizona with highs right around average in the mid 80s for Tucson. According to Meteorologist John Patrick, temperatures will see a modest and gradual decline into the middle of the week with a high of 82 by Wednesday.

Tropical Storm Octave has formed in the eastern Pacific bringing heavy rain to the Baja Coast. Thirty years ago this month a tropical system of the same name brought torrential downpours to southern Arizona. This time around Octave will just have a small impact on the region.

This system is streaming some upper level moisture and high cloud cover into the southeastern corner of the sate. Places like Douglas and Bisbee might be able to squeeze a shower out of this moisture by Tuesday.

Overall little weather worries for the week ahead with seasonable temperatures in your True View 4 extended forecast.
