TUCSON - So long, isolated showers.
A cold front will track across the state this afternoon, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Isolated showers and thunderstorms develop ahead of the front, mainly north of an Oracle/Safford line. Dry air intruding from the southwest squashes rain chances for southern Arizona today.
While we won't see the rain, we will feel the wind. Expect west-southwest winds gusting to 25 MPH this afternoon under partly cloud skies. Highs today reach the low 80's, about 10-15 degrees cooler than yesterday.
Improving weather is in store starting tomorrow, as the front slides away from Arizona. High temps range from the mid 80's Friday to upper 80's/low 90's starting Saturday. Sunny skies look to hold serve tomorrow though early next week.
