TUCSON - Cool front bringing a short taste of fall to southern Arizona.
Temperatures have taken a 5 degree tumble over the past 24 hours with Tucson topping out at 86 this afternoon, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. This is our first below average daytime high for the month of October. As our first cool front moves through this evening and overnight we will be left with daytime highs in the mid 70s to round out the work week.
Tucson International picked up a quick trace of rain earlier today as a few showers moved through Tucson. We are still holding onto a chance to see some isolated showers throughout the overnight hours and into Friday morning. As this system clips the northern corner of the state best storm chances fall in northern Graham and Greenlee Counties. Clearing is expected throughout the afternoon hours tomorrow with generally sunny skies region wide for the second half of the day.
High pressure builds back into the western states early next week for another warm up. Daytime highs jump right back up into the 90s as soon as Monday.
