TUCSON-Southern Arizona is in for cooler temperaures and a chance of showers and thunderstorms by Tuesday evening.
A low pressure system dropping by will bring in the some drizzle and an increase in afternoon winds. Chief Meteorologist Rob Guarino says those showers are expected to linger into Wednesday esp. east of Tucson and into Cochise County.
By early afternoon, the scattered showers could cover much of the Southeastern 1/3 of the state even pushing into Central Arizona.
Showers and storms are expected to decrease by late afternoon.
A strong possibility of blowing dust and reduced visibility from southeast Arizona into central Arizona is expected to accompany those showers, some with winds over 35mph.
A drying and warming trend will begin Thursday, and we could reach triple digits by then.
